Experiences with the Impact of Tracking Technology in Mobile Augmented Reality Evaluations


In this paper, we discuss the impact of tracking technology on user studies of mobile augmented reality applications. We present findings from several of our previous publications in the field, discussing how tracking technology can impact, influence and compromise experimental results. Lessons learned from our experience show that suitable tracking technology is a key requirement and a fundamental factor in the user experience of the application. Tracking technology should therefore be considered not only during implementation but also as a factor in the design and evaluation phases.
