Augmented reality (AR) allows us to build complex and interactive environments, where people can “live” different situations, as if they were real. The considered AR hardware devices take into account both optical see-through devices (e.g. Meta Vision) and video see-through ones (e.g Google Cardboard). In particular, the idea is to develop methods and techniques to build AR applications that allow people (i) to manipulate real objects enriched by virtual contents (the occlusions have to be handled to obtain a natural manipulation), and (ii) to walk in enriched environments, where the users can interact with virtual contents both on the ground and on real objects (the motion cues have to be considered to obtain an ecological interaction).
