Abstract

We present work in progress towards the development of a platform for the creation of augmented reality (AR) content by the end user. Based upon a review of existing AR authoring tools and scenarios we have envisioned in the context of smart cities, we have developed SituAR, an architecture for a platform in which the user is able to create AR content using multimedia elements. Our emphasis is on making augmented reality easier to put together and to empower users to become authors in AR scenarios. We also include social media elements for users to share, rank, and comment the content created in order to add new information and to facilitate interaction. This paper discusses the architecture of SituAR and its potential.
