Abstract: Currently, immersive experience is the main highlight of mobile AR applications, but the impact of different interaction methods of virtual objects, which are the main experience content, is less studied.The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of different interaction methods of virtual objects on the immersive experience, usability and satisfaction of mobile AR applications.In this study, 30 users experienced two different AR model presentation methods by customizing the independent variables (two different model interaction viewing methods, steering viewing Demo1 and free viewing Demo2), using a one-way within-group experimental design, and the data were processed by repeated measures ANOVA.The experimental report showed that Demo1 outperformed Demo2 in terms of spatial sense of immersion experience and ease of learning in usability; Demo2 outperformed Demo1 in terms of realism of immersion experience and efficiency of interaction with virtual objects; and Demo1/2 differed less in terms of fluency of the experiment.Our conclusion is that the interaction method of turning to view Demo1 is more immersive and spatial, and can be used in exhibition AR applications, and the interaction method of free view Demo2 is more novel and efficient in operation, and can be used in new AR games to improve user satisfaction. In general, AR applications should consider the age range of audience users when designing the viewing method of virtual objects, and choose the operation method that is more suitable for most people, easier to learn and more convenient.
