AR City: Paving the Way for Augmented Reality Navigation

Over the last decade, devices with Global Positioning System, commonly abbreviated as GPS, have proved to be powerful tools in assisting users navigate through city streets.

In fact, they often spark off discussions as to who was right or wrong in interpreting the indication saying “turn left after 100 meters”.
