Navigating multiple augmented reality overlays through occlusion-based triggers

Publication Year: 2014 Publication Type : ConferenceProceeding


Most Augmented Reality applications feature an information overlay over physical objects that consists of text, images, and animated 3-D models. We go a step further by using an AR-menu and linking multiple overlays using occlusion-based triggers that help navigate between the different overlays. This paper describes the development of an AR-based tutorial for a common real-world scenario. Using multiple overlays allows us to design a comprehensive AR tutorial by presenting more information on the same physical object in a hierarchical manner with a narrative structure. We describe the design features in an attempt to elucidate the issues related to the development of the AR tutorials.
