As the booming of mobile technologies, handheld Augmented Reality draws increasing attention. One crucial process is the position and orientation estimation of the handheld device relative to a reference coordinate system in order to display the virtual content accurately upon the real world. An emerging application is to integrate multimedia elements (e.g., text, images, sound, video) in physical real books to enhance the learning process or provide amusement and interaction. Square markers are popularly used due to their ease-to-use and high accuracy. However, these markers cause visual discomfort. This paper introduces a novel pose tracking approach for mobile devices by combining a tricolored strip, an internal camera and embedded inertial sensors. Furthermore, the application to books is studied. The proposed approach is less intrusive than square markers due to its reduced size and provides accurate six-degree-of-freedom pose estimation in real time.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
