In the last decade augmented reality gained more and more interest in the scientific and industrial domain. Currently it is envisioned that augmented reality could help during all kinds of tasks. Using Augmented Reality in different scenarios, however, can have multiple unwanted influences in decisions and lead to unwanted behaviors. Thus, Dependability can become an issue.
We envision that in our near future augmented reality is the key in our daily lives. Different information will be displayed in heterogeneous environments and influence our decisions. Especially when it comes to safety critical decisions, e.g. while approaching to a crossing, the unwanted display of incorrect information may lead do dangerous situations. In this research area, we are going to tackle exactly that problem.
In order to enhance the overall correctness of displayed information we are going to evaluate mechanisms and algorithms to prove the dependability of context-aware augmented reality for wearable computing devices using multiple scenarios.
