Abstract

With recent advances in mobile computing technologies, mobile devices can now render 3D objects realistically. Many users of these devices such as tourists, mixed-reality gamers, and rescue of fleers, need real-time retrieval of 3D objects over a wireless network. Due to bandwidth and latency restrictions in mobile settings, efficient continuous retrieval of 3D objects remains a challenge. In this paper, we describe a motion-aware approach to this problem. We first introduce multi-resolution storage and retrieval methods for 3D data, which restrict access to only the necessary content based on the client's motion pattern. We then propose a motion-aware buffer management technique as well as ..
