Homes, subway stations, streets, farms, and other spaces are increasingly augmented with sensors and actuators. Add mobile devices carried by users, and conditions are created for mixed reality systems with applications in entertainment, training, control (home automation, surveillance, energy management, transportation, assisted living...) search and rescue, public safety, disaster response, etc.
Mixed reality systems merge the virtual and the real. The real world may be presented to users augmented with views of virtual and real entities albeit distant or hidden from direct sight. The virtual helps monitor and control the real world, via sensors and actuators.
