ABSTRACT
<p>Tracking in fully mobile configurations, especially outdoors is still a challenging problem. Augmented reality (AR) applications demand a perfect alignment of real scene and virtual augmentation, thus posing stringent requirements. Only vision-based tracking is known to deliver sufficient accuracy, but it is too slow and too sensitive to outliers to be used alone. The authors present a new hybrid tracking system for fully mobile outdoor AR applications that fuses vision-based tracking with an inertial tracking system.</p>
