An Event-Based Communication Mechanism to Realize a Mobile Collaborative AR Environment

Abstract The following work focuses on the requirements and development of a component to provide information for Collaborative Augmented Reality Systems by using Web technologies. In collaborative mobile environments a mechanism is needed to distribute information by event handling on different devices for multiple users. Therefore a component is required to minimise the data traffic which occur during information exchange between all collaborative users. An analysis of useful scenarios and derivation of possible resulting requirements to form the basis for this component will be shown in this paper. Finally the component was successfully integrated in a collaborative AR environment in the industrial field.
