Zhong, X., Boulanger, P., and Georganas, N.(2002). Collaborative Augmented Reality: A Prototype for Industrial Training? 21st Biennial Symposium on Communications, Canada, June.

In this paper, we describe a prototype of a collaborative industrial teletraining system, based on distributed augmented reality. Augmented reality typically interfaced by a wearable computer is a natural method to present computer-based tools by merging graphics with a view of the real world. Distribution enables users on remote sites to collaborate on the training tasks by sharing the view of the local user equipped with a wearable computer. In this prototype, the users can interactively manipulate virtual objects that substitute for real objects, try out and discuss the training tasks.
