Augmented Reality (AR) is a technique that combines a live view in real-time with virtual computergenerated images, creating a real-time augmented experience of reality. In this paper we define connection between augmented reality and cognitive infocommunications and show a demonstration system for driver support which combines raw sensory with extracted visual data to provide extended information about the visual scene around the car. Traffic sign recognition system presented in this paper is an independent work of U1 Research and Top-Map Plc.
