Viewpoint stabilization for live collaborative video augmentations
We present a method for stabilizing live video from a moving camera for the purpose of a tele-meeting, in which a participant with an AR view onto a shared canvas collaborates with a remote user. The AR view is established without markers and using no other tracking equipment than a head-worn camera. The remote user is allowed to directly annotate the local user’s view in real time on a desktop or tablet PC. The planar homographies between the reference frame and the other following frames are maintained. In effect, both the local and remote participants can annotate the physical meeting space, the local AR user through physical interaction, the remote user through our stabilized video. When tracking is lost, the remote user can still continue annotating on a frozen video frame. We tested several small demo applications with this new form of transient AR collaboration that can be established easily, on a per need basis, and without complicated equipment or calibration requirements.
