Abstract

We propose an architecture for augmented reality applications. Three-dimensional stereoscopic graphics is presented to group of users wearing light weight see-through displays simultaneously. Individuals can independently control their viewpoint, and configure the displayed data to their likings and needs. As everybody sees the same model, and at the same time users see each other, working together is very effective. Numerous applications are possible, mostly for information visualization and education purposes. To support our claims, we describe the client server software architecture underlying this system, and some of the details of technical details that must be addressed to create a high-quality augmented reality setting.
