Abstract

In this paper we introduce a system based on commercial off-theshelf components for augmented reality support in general assisted living scenarios. Our system is comprised of (i) a smartphone with near field communication (NFC) capabilities and (ii) a wearable 3D see-through display. Both components utilize the Android operating system and are connected wirelessly. We demonstrate how such system can be used for aiding interaction of mobile users with their environment, e.g., as patients in assisted living or rehabilitation facilities. In our demonstrated state, the system allows users to gain language-independent contextual hints about their environment by touching tagged objects with their phone, which displays corresponding information on the headmounted display.
