A MAR Game Design via a Remote Control Module

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8853)


This paper intends to propose an interactive system that allows users to remotely control device and combine augmented reality content with the application. It is possible to generate games or education applications. Using augmented Reality and remote-control module as starting point, we design a MAR (Mobile Augmented Reality) game that contains shooting game, roadblock hindrance, and traffic signal game. Then use the mobile remote-control module to control the device. Finally, use augmented reality technology to allow real objects to interact directly with the virtual objects. As a platform to integrate mobile phone, we complete the development of augmented reality remote-control module application. The difference from the general AR applications is that our proposed method combines the remote-control objects to interact with virtual objects.
