Tracking the position and orientation (pose) of camera is a critical challenge for different modern applications like augmented reality, robot navigation, robot localisation, and 3D modelling and surveillance systems. Marker-based tracking is the most active technique used for camera pose estimation. For the development of augmented reality applications different marker-based tracking toolkits are available that consists of specific set of fiducial markers. In this paper, various fiducial marker attributes are analysed that helps to increase the accuracy of marker-based tracking in augmented reality applications. Experimental modules are developed to calculate the optimal values for each attribute. The experiments are designed to analyse the marker size, distance between marker and camera, the marker speed along all axis, the environmental brightness, the lighting contrast in the environment and dependency of marker size on tracking distance. Experimental study shows that these attributes affect the marker tracking. Augmented reality researchers can use these findings for the development of more reliable and accurate application.
