More than 53% of the world population lives in urban areas and, according to the World Bank, the trend is accelerating. By 2050 over 65% of us will live in cities. With sensors going into our buildings, transportation systems and personal communication devices, urban areas are also producing digital data at an accelerating rate. Many of us will soon be able to see and use this geo-referenced information in context with mobile Augmented Reality.

In this session, we examine Urban AR drivers: how the Internet of Things, big data analytics combined with Augmented Reality will permit professionals to perform tasks and provide services more efficiently and with lower risk. City visitors and citizens will also lead richer, more enjoyable and informed lives with the assistance of AR-enabled services.

In order to better understand what is required to meet these goals, we will take stock of Urban AR today.

What type of city data is available and suitable for use in AR experiences?
Who creates and who are the target users of urban AR experiences?
Who pays for the AR-assisted urban services?
Where have urban AR projects been successful?
What are some of the obstacles to the development/growth of urban AR?
Speaker: Christine Perey, PEREY Research & Consulting and the AR for Enterprise Alliance
