Phone AR for Smart Home Control

Our living and work spaces are becoming ever more enriched with all kinds of electronic devices. Many of these are too small to provide the possibility to control or monitor them. Ambient intelligence is integrating many such devices in what are called smart environments to form a network of interweaved sensors, data displays and everyday devices. We developed a method to intuitively issue control over smart objects in such an environment, to display data that smart objects provide and to manage the flow of information between objects in a smart environment. This is achieved by using touch-enabled mobile phones as readily available multi-purpose devices which are used to overlay real objects with virtual controls.
