Title:
Creating automatically aligned consensus realities for AR videoconferencing 
Abstract:
This paper presents an AR videoconferencing approach merging two remote rooms into a shared workspace. Such bilateral AR telepresence inherently suffers from breaks in immersion stemming from the different physical layouts of participating spaces. As a remedy, we develop an automatic alignment scheme which ensures that participants share a maximum of common features in their physical surroundings. The system optimizes alignment with regard to initial user position, free shared floor space, camer...    »
