The 5G augmented reality tourism application World Around Me (WAM) is being developed by World Around Me and The North Pennines AONB Partnership to enhance the visitor experience.  The App will include tourist information, which can be discovered by visitors through their mobile phone cameras when inside the North Pennines region.

Using the 5G testbed, the partners are initially focussing on events and audio and video content streaming, which allow users to discover more about tourist destinations in Alston Moor, Cumbria, such as Nenthead Mines and the South Tynedale Railway. In addition, there are plans to create virtual reality content, allowing tourists a more immersive experience when visiting the region, by transporting them inside inaccessible sites such as Alston Corn Mill.
