Abstract: The aim of ubiquitous computing is to shift computing from the traditional desktops to the physical environment. However, the interaction methods with objects and services are not intuitive and demand much focus from users. Furthermore, the application development process requires expert knowledge, which means less control by users over their environment. Augmented reality (AR) allows for computer-generated graphics, sound and other sensory stimuli to be added into the user?s experience of the physical world, thereby opening up many possible enhancements to an environment. In this research, a framework called SmARtWorld is proposed, which aims to facilitate smart AR environments. SmARtWorld is designed for universal environments with intuitive and user-friendly interfaces to computer applications, based on the novel idea that everything is a smart object with a virtual user interface to its data and functionality. It is hoped that with global adoption of this framework, ubiquitous smart environments can be achieved.
