Augmented Mobile Interactive Experience: Application to Maintenance Services
The AMIE project opens a vast new research agenda for mobile Augmented Reality (AR) by making it interactive: Instead of only focusing on superimposing graphics on the real world, we aim at making the real world interactive by defining contextual reusable widgets attached to real objects and places. We introduce the term AR widget as a central concept of the AMIE project. The goal is to define reusable software building blocks for interactive AR. We base our approach on widgets (by analogy with Graphical User Interface) as elementary objects that take part in AR interaction. Instead of superimposing graphics on the real world, we aim at augmenting the physical world with widgets. Such widgets will be linked to the real world and will be manipulated by the users. As for Graphical User Interface (GUI) (e.g., the contextual menu attached to a selected graphical object), we will define AR contextual widget attached to a physical object.
