Augmented Reality – Impact measurement when Ad Networks have no access

What's in place to measure advertising within mobile augmented reality applications?

When it comes to print advertising, audit circulation bureaus provide the best verification of frequency and reach for broadcasting ads to a targeted audience.

Thus they have the ability to measure ad engagement, not just published content engagement like a TV show or a magazine.
