We proposed a 6 degrees of freedom augmentation system aimed at meeting the high accuracy requirements of engineering tasks. A stationary panoramic video camera captures a stream that is augmented by a portable computer. A handheld tablet device located in the same area broadcasts its instantaneous orientation, and receives the augmented view in the corresponding orientation, in real time. The panoramic camera can also be moved to other locations and simultaneously tracked by the system, providing 6 degrees of freedom augmentation. This gives the user a third person perspective augmentation, which is very precise and potentially more accurate than handheld augmentation.
