The purpose of this project is to build up knowledge about how future Mixed Reality (MR) systems should be designed concerning technical solutions, aspects of Human-Machine-Interactio (HMI) and logistics. The report describes the work performed in phase 2. Regarding hardware a hand-held MR-unit, a wearable MR-system and a gaze-controlled MR-unit have been developed. The work regarding software has continued with the same software architecture and MR-tool as in the former phase 1. A number of improvements, extensions and minor changes have been conducted as well as a general update. The work has also included experiments with two test case applications, "Turn-Round of Gripen (JAS)" and "Starting-Up Diathermy Apparatus". Comprehensive literature searches and surveys of knowledge of HMI aspects have been conducted, especially regarding gaze-controlled interaction. The report also includes a brief overview of other projects within the area of Mixed Reality.
