    • Computer Vision AR
      Computer identifies a marker placed in front of its camera
      Projects a 3D object based on the orientation of the marker
      Often used on desktop computers but mobile available too
    • Computer Vision AR

    • Sensor AR
      Utilizes a smart phone’s camera, internal GPS, compass, accelerometer, and gyroscope capabilities to find the phone’s position
      Provides data related to points near that location
      Often uses AR browsers such as Wikitude, Layar, or Junaio
