Figure 1 : Going through a technician's to-do list with the Ubiquitous Technician application. This application seamlessly combines an indoor AR navigation system (a,c), an ultra-wideband calibration aid (b), and a machine maintenance application (d). ABSTRACT Most of today's Augmented Reality (AR) systems operate as passive information browsers relying on a finite and deterministic world model and a predefined hardware and software infrastructure. We propose an AR framework that dynamically

Our framework explores proactive computing, multi-user interface adaptation, and user interface migration. We employ mobile and autonomous agents embodied by real and virtual objects as an interface and interaction metaphor, where agent bodies are able to opportunistically migrate between multiple AR applications and computing platforms to best match the needs of the current application context. We present two pilot applications to illustrate design concepts.
