The development of augmented reality (AR) technologies and the capabilities of modern mobile devices has led to the emergence of a new class of AR mobile navigation systems. One of the basic requirement of such applications is device localization and precise mapping of the route and other visual objects to observed environment, which requires high accuracy of positioning and orientation.
This paper addresses the problem of localization precision in AR navigators and proposes general concept of improving accuracy of basic GPS-based methods by augmenting them with local device information about its position. Some algorithms and experimental results are provided to demonstrate benefits of the proposed method.
