What is TrakMark WG

In the research fields of Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), tracking and registration methods are still one of the most important topics. The tracking research field is highly active, and numerous methods appear on a regular basis. Since the year 2008, the Tracking Competition has been held at the ISMAR symposium and since then attracted an increasing number of participants.

Based on this background, the TrakMark working group (WG) was established 2009 as a lower branch of the Special Interest Group on Mixed Reality (SIG-MR), the Virtual Reality Society of Japan (VRSJ). The TrakMark WG aims to create a benchmark test that permits objective and accurate evaluation of the tracking methods. For this purpose, it is necessary to select evaluation items, set evaluation standards and consolidate test data. Once the foundations and the test scheme are established, it should be possible to interact with industries seeking to use AR/MR technology in practical settings. Moreover, this could help to provide a spur to researchers aiming to improve current tracking methods.
