Mobile collaborative augmented reality: A prototype for industrial training

  title={Mobile collaborative augmented reality: A prototype for industrial training},
  author={Xiaowei Zhong},
In this paper, we describe a prototype of a collaborative industrial teletraining system, based on distributed augmented reality. Augmented reality typically interfaced by a wearable computer is a natural method to present computer-based tools by merging graphics with a view of the real world. Distribution enables users on remote sites to collaborate on the training tasks by sharing the view of the local user equipped with a wearable computer. In this prototype, the users can interactively…
