Area Targets with external camera / UVC In Unity

November 4, 2021 - 10:24am #1

Hi!

Is it possible to use Area Targets with external UVC?

- I have an area target that works without the external UVC.

- Image targets works with UVC.

- I'm using Unity 2020.3, and Vuforia 10.2.5.

- I'm using Microsoft's LifeCam (bought recently) as the UVC.

- I haven't done the Calibration Information / Camera profile (as suggested here: https://library.vuforia.com/articles/Solution/uvc-camera-driver.html).

Is it even possible?

 

Thanks, 

Yotam.

Hello,

Correct. As a UVC is not supported by platform CV services (i.e. ARCore), it cannot support Area Targets.

Thank you for the reply!

I just wanna make sure, even though I'm using Samsung S21 Ultra, which does support ARcore and can use Area Targets (tested without the UVC), it still won't work when using UVC with Vuforia's driver?

Hello,

Apologies, but this will not work. Area Targets is only supported by devices that run ARKit/ARCore, or HoloLens.

Please see the following article for more details: https://library.vuforia.com/environments/area-targets
