Filtering 3d shared surrounding environments by social proximity in ar.
In Adjunct Proceedings of the IEEE International Symposium for Mixed and Augmented Reality 2018 (To appear). 2018.
In this poster, we explore social sharing of surrounding environments on wearable Augmented Reality (AR) devices. In particular we propose filtering the level of detail of sharing the surrounding environment based on the social proximity between the viewer and the sharer. We test the effect of having the filter (varying levels of detail) on the shared surrounding environment on the sense of privacy from both viewer and sharer perspectives, and conducted a pilot study using HoloLens. We report on semi-structured questionnaire results and suggest future directions in the social sharing of surrounding environments.
