AR is the first real consumer application where the lack of positioning accuracy presents a serious implementation problem. Up until now it has been about navigation or setting general location-based context where there was no good justification for precise positioning. Mobile outdoor AR requires relatively accurate position and orientation tracking to register the virtual information (e.g. a virtual urban 3D model) with the physical buildings and objects. One major challenge is achieving highly accurate tracking information.
