Remote visual tracking for the (mobile) web
Augmented Reality is maturing, but in a world where we are used to straightforward services on the internet, Augmented Reality applications require a lot of preparation before they can be used. Our approach shows how we can bring Augmented Reality into a normal web browser, or even browsers on mobile devices. We show how we are, with recent features of HTML5, able to augment reality based on complex 3D tracking in a browser without having to install or set up any software on a client. With this solution, we are able to extend 3D Web applications with AR and reach more users with a reduced usability barrier. A key contribution of our work is a pipeline for remote tracking built on web-standards.
