Making Augmented Reality Practical on Mobile Phones, Part 1
May/June 2009 (vol. 29 no. 3)
pp. 12-15
Daniel Wagner, Graz University of Technology
Dieter Schmalstieg, Graz University of Technology
Since 2003, the authors have been developing three generations of a software framework for handheld augmented reality (AR), targeting mobile phones. This article is the first part of a discussion on the experiences and design decisions that resulted in the current software framework, Studierstube ES (Embedded System). The authors describe the restrictions of the mobile phone platform and a software architecture that allows fast development of mobile phone AR applications.
