Comparison of Marker-Based and Markerless AR: A Case Study of An Indoor Decoration System

Abstract: The feature of combining the real world with virtual objects enables Augmented Reality (AR) to provide a better display of information, resulting in its increasing popularity in a variety of industries. However, sometimes the two types of AR application marker-based AR and markerless AR are confusing to developers. These two types of AR can be applied to different situations because both of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. So it is necessary for developers to learn the difference between these two types of AR. In this paper, an AR-based indoor decoration system is developed to illustrate the difference between marker-based AR and markerless AR. The developed system can aid in viewing the effect of indoor decoration with both virtual facilities and product information in advance. Based on the two modules of this system (marker-based module and markerless module), this paper makes a comparison between these two types of AR in the following four aspects: (1) methods in realizing AR, (2) position accuracy, (3) stability, and (4) hardware support. The comparison results can provide future developers with a judgement basis when deciding which types of AR to select.
