We demonstrate a complete system for markerless augmented reality using robust structure from motion. The proposed system includes two main components. The first is a means of learning the appearance of complex 3D objects and augmenting them with virtual annotations. Its output is database of recognizable landmarks along with 3D descriptions of accompanying virtual objects. The second component uses this data to recognize the previously learned landmarks, recover camera pose, and render the associated virtual content. Both components make use of the recently developed subtrack optimization algorithm for structure from motion, which we demonstrate to be a useful tool for both learning the structure of objects and tracking camera pose after recognition. The complete system is demonstrated on several complex real-world examples.
