Abstract: In this paper, we present a unified framework for remote collaboration using interactive augmented reality (AR) authoring and hand tracking methods. The proposed framework enables a local user to organize AR digital contents for making a shared working environment and collaborate multiple users in the distance. To develop the framework, we combine two core technologies: (i) interactive AR authoring method utilizing a smart input device for making a shared working space, (ii) hand-augmented object interaction method by tracking two hands in egocentric camera view. We implement a prototype of the proposed remote collaboration framework for testing its feasibility in an indoor environment. To the end, we expect that our framework enables collaboration as feeling a sense of co-presence with remote users in a user’s friendly AR working space.
