I am a software development lecturer at Solent University in the UK, teaching Android and web development, and long-time OpenStreetMap contributor and FOSS enthusiast. I have particular interest in developing geospatial applications and augmented reality for outdoor users; my projects are hosted at https://gitlab.com/nickw1/.

Hikar is an OSM-based augmented reality navigation app for walkers and hikers, showing OSM ways overlaid on the camera feed of the device and, in the latest version, virtual signposts pointing the way to nearby points of interest. This technical talk will introduce Hikar, detail the many new developments since it was last presented at SOTM Birmingham 2013, and describe how it works in technical detail.
