Abstract

Pervasive Augmented Reality Gaming and Mobile P2P are both attracting significant focus and much progress has occurred recently. Augmented reality games extend reality with virtual elements to enhance game experience and mobile P2P networks provide autonomous, self-organizing, scalable and robust communication platforms. We review the technological challenges in both mobile P2P computing and AR domains by investigating some existing related works. Then we propose possible directions of the mobile AR collaborative gaming over pip networks and show its advantages over other AR gaming and discuss the feasibility and future requirements regarding the support for this type of game. © 2007 IEEE.
