Wearable Augmented Reality can be used to overlay information onto the real world. Directional interfaces in W.A.R. aid users to orient themselves so that previously invusible targets are now inside their field of view. This is relevant when the user tries to find the next waypoint during a navagational task. We surveyed directuinal interfaces that have been used in augmented reality previously and compared their efficiency. We have found that a circular compass is the most efficient way to provide orientation cues.

FingARtips - Gesture Based Direct Manipulation in Augmented Reality Buchmann, V.; Violich, S.; Billinghurst, Mark; Cockburn, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering.University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Laboratory., 2004)This paper presents a technique for natural, fingertip-based interaction with virtual objects in Augmented Reality (AR) environments. We use image processing software and finger- and hand-based fiducial markers to track ...
