<p>Tracking, or camera pose determination, is the main technical challenge in creating augmented reality. This article describes an efficient and reliable method for real-time camera tracking. This method is based on the knowledge of a piecewise planar structure in the scene and requires neither markers nor sensors to recover the viewpoint. The system yields results comparable in accuracy with full structure-and-motion methods but with better reliability. Results are presented, demonstrating tracking for indoors and outdoor urban scenes.</p>
