Filtering 3d shared surrounding environments by social proximity in ar.
In Adjunct Proceedings of the IEEE and ACM 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 details of sharing the surround environment based on the social proximity between the viewer and the sharer. We test the effect of having the filter (varying level of details) on the shared surrounding environment on the sense of privacy for both the viewer and the sharer perspectives. We conducted a pilot study using HoloLens. We report on semi-structured questionnaire results and suggest future directions in the social sharing of surrounding environments.
