Abstract
Augmented Reality (AR) is a new and exciting technology with
wide potential implementation areas, from medical to industry.
One of the fields from which AR is gaining attention is the
manned security industry. Unfortunately, this is also one of
the areas in which formal studies on AR is lacking. Ais study
aims to bridge the gap in knowledge by evaluating an AR-application
designed for the Microsoft HoloLens to support
working security guards with navigation and a list of current
tasks without negatively affecting their situation awareness.
Ae study is based on a pilot project in which the application
was designed. Results from the pilot project suggested
that participants’ situation awareness was enhanced when using

Augmented Reality (AR) is a new and exciting technology with

One of the fields from which AR is gaining attention is the

aims to bridge the gap in knowledge by evaluating an AR-application
designed for the Microsoft HoloLens to support
working security guards with navigation and a list of current
tasks without negatively affecting their situation awareness.
Ae study is based on a pilot project in which the application
was designed. Results from the pilot project suggested
that participants’ situation awareness was enhanced when using
a round model of guidance in AR-navigation compared to
when using an arrow, even though a majority of participants
subjectively preferred the arrows.
In the current study, a third model of guidance was added,
and potential confounding variables were controlled for. A
majority of participants still preferred the arrows, however,
results suggests no significant difference in participants’ situation
awareness between the three models of guidance. Ae
study did not replicate results from the pilot project, this might
be due to limitations pertaining to the AR-technology used in
the study. (Less)
