    Abstract

    Most of the existing shopping mall directory is provided in the form of kiosk in the shopping mall, although there are some mall directories provided online in the form of website, but still, both forms of mall directory have the problem of giving confusing instructions to guide the users to their destination. Furthermore, smart devices are nearly categorized as a necessity in life during the current era, and users are prone to use their smart devices to view the mall directory or navigation route since it is portable and convenient, unlike traditional mall directory kiosk provided in the shopping mall which is lack of portability. An interactive directory via Augmented Reality (AR) in the form of mobile application will further improve the function of a mall directory. AR technology allow the presentation of clear and simple navigation instructions and a mobile interactive directory via AR allow users to navigate in the correct way and direction without any confusion. The 3D point map localization that works well for indoor environment with rich visual features is added to this application to make it more convenient for the users as it can identify the current location of the user, which can provide help to the user who do not know their exact location. Users can choose their destination by selecting the shop name provided and get a route displayed in real-time to guide them to their desired destination. The AR navigation function provided by this project is highly specific on the location, it will be functioning well provided the user is physically located in the specific shopping mall environment. Additionally, this project enables users to view the general details of the shopping mall, such as shop list and the floor plan of the mall. Lastly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic occurring in Malaysia, an alternative indoor environment has been chosen to replace the real shopping mall environment.
