ShareAR: Communication-efficient multi-user mobile augmented reality


Conference Paper

© 2019 ACM. Augmented reality is an emerging application on mobile devices. However, there is a lack of understanding of the communication requirements and challenges of multi-user AR scenarios. In this position paper, we propose several important research issues that need to be addressed for low-latency, accurate shared AR experiences: (a) Systems tradeoffs of AR communication architectures used today in mobile AR platforms; (b) Understanding AR communication patterns and adapting the AR application layer to dynamically changing network conditions; and (c) Tools and methodologies to evaluate AR quality of experience in real time on mobile devices. We present preliminary measurements of off-the-shelf mobile AR platforms as well as results from our AR system, ShareAR, illustrating performance tradeoffs and indicating promising new research directions.
