Techniques for Managing AR-Enhanced Tourism Challenges AR is poised to provide a huge advantage for travelers and tourists, but it has many challenges to overcome before it is truly street-ready. AR tourism developers need to account for the wide variety and capabilites of smart devices in use, advances in device technology like depth-sensing cameras, and more, in order to reliably present engaging experiences for the widest range of travelers. The pipeline for such high-end AR apps is time-consuming and multifaceted, especially when photorealistic assets are required for historical accuracy and veracity. New and improved functions are always in demand, such as mixed visual/conversational interfaces, attentive characters with AI-assisted navigation, interactive maps, and engaging narrative and gameplay. Developers of outdoor AR experiences face additional challenges including marker recognition in varying weather and lighting, and precise geolocation over large areas. For the user, this set of needs translates into rapid battery consumption, and outdoor experiences do not necessarily offer convenient recharging.
