ISSUES AND CHALLENGES IN HANDHELD AUGMENTED REALITY APPLICATIONS

Stan Kurkovsky

Abstract

Equipped with powerful processors, cameras for capturing still images and video, and a range of sensors capable of tracking user location, orientation and motion smartphones offer a sophisticated platform for implementing handheld augmented reality applications. Despite the advances in research and development, implementing handheld augmented reality applications remains a challenge due to many unsolved problems related to navigation, context-awareness, visualisation, usability and interaction design, as well as content creation and sharing, which are surveyed in this paper.
