5 Conclusions

We construct virtual object settings and create the appearance by traffic signal as well as various animation of virtual traffic light, for the reality and remote toys as starting point. We uses the mobile device to control the car. Finally, it allows the car to interact directly with the virtual traffic light, using augmented reality technology. We complete the development of augmented reality car application with a platform to integrate mobile phone. It combines the real toys with virtual objects.

Our proposed remote-control module can be a car, robot, boat, helicopters, and so on. AR interaction with different devices produces more interesting applications. In this paper, we propose two system process modes and design three play scenarios. Combining AR and remote-control car gets more different experience and pleasure. Future studies should further investigate user friendliness and usability with respect to remote-control toys and AR system. The development of additional interaction technology to create Augmented Reality content allows users to understand and use easily.
