Inverse augmented reality: a virtual agent's perspective.
In Adjunct Proceedings of the IEEE and ACM International Symposium for Mixed and Augmented Reality 2018 (To appear). 2018.
We propose a framework called inverse augmented reality which describes the scenario that a virtual agent living in the virtual world can observe both virtual objects and real objects. This is different from the traditional augmented reality. The traditional virtual reality; mixed reality and augmented reality are all generated for humans; i.e.; they are human-centered frameworks. On the contrary; the proposed inverse augmented reality (IAR) is a virtual-agent-centered framework; which represents and analyze the reality from a virtual agent's perspective. In this paper; we elaborate the framework of inverse augmented reality to argue the equivalence of the virtual world and the physical world regarding the whole physical structure.
