We have developed a hand-held augmented reality platform exploiting
a combination of multiple sensors built around an ultra-wideband tracking
system. We demonstrate two applications illustrating how an environment exploiting
this platform can be set up. Firstly, a technician-support application
provides intuitive in-situ instructions on how a wide area tracking system
should be configured. The use of 3D registered graphics greatly assists in the
debugging of common awkward use cases involving reflections off metal surfaces.
Secondly, a navigation application utilises this newly configured and
calibrated tracker, as well as other sensors, adapting to whatever is available in
a given locale.
