Abstract : We present here a novel cross-platform library to facilitate research and development applications dealing with augmented reality (AR). Features include 2D and 3D objects visualization and interaction, camera flow and image manipulation, and soft-body deformation. Our aim is to provide computer vision specialists' with tools to facilitate AR application development by providing easy and state of the art access to GUI creation, visualization and hardware management. We demonstrate both the simplicity and the efficiency of coding AR applications through three detailed examples. PoLAR can be downloaded at and is distributed under the GPL licence.
