An analysis tool for cooperative mixed reality scenarios.

In this paper; we want to introduce a novel mixed reality (MR) analysis tool that provides 3D reproductions of multiple actors using head-mounted AR devices in a cooperative setting. The tool is motivated by a challenge we are faced with when analysing AR support for cooperative scenarios: For this analysis; one needs information on people's movements and behaviour as well as on their interaction with digital information and objects. As other means of analysis proved insufficient for these purposes; we created and applied a novel tool which shows wearers of Head Mounted Displays (HMD) devices; the digital objects they interacted with and the actual setting they were in. The tool features several features for the analysis of these settings; which were predominately based on requirements stemming from two cases studies. In this paper; we present the tool; its most prominent features; and its application in two cases. To our knowledge; there is no other tool that includes similar features and means for analysis available; and we would like to discuss its benefits and possible applications with interested colleagues.
