A Client/Server Architecture for Augmented Assembly on Mobile Phones

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


We present a client/server augmented reality (AR) system for viewing complex assembly models on mobile phones. Complex model information is located on a PC which takes care of all of the heavy AR tracking and rendering computation. A camera phone is used as a client to show this information, augmented on still images as an animated view. The mobile phone interface also supports correct masking of the assembly pieces as they come together, as well as a graphics only viewing mode intended for better understanding of the assembly process. In addition to describing the mobile augmented assembly system we present results from two pilot user studies evaluating elements of the user interface.
