Why does the SDK only work on certain devices?

January 11, 2011 - 1:43am #1

Does the SDK run only on Qualcomm hardware?

Does it then rely on a specific feature/hardware block on Qualcomm hardware?

Or is there some sort of check in the code which only allows it to run on Qualcomm hardware?

Release should be sometime in Q2 of this year. More devices may be added before then though, keep an eye on the Supported Devices list on the SDK main page: http://ar.qualcomm.com

Is there any ETA for the first release, or at least support for some new(er) devices such as the galaxy tab? We have big plans to develop AR applications, and the ability to use unity with your plugin would help us big time.

We're still a little ways off from supporting a wider range of devices, bear with us :) In regards to the Droid though, I think you might be a little disappointed in the performance, AR applications will run better on newer devices.

Interesting...

I have a Droid and once I got the correct USB driver from Motorola things started to work, least eclipse and adb was able to see my device. I was able to use eclipse to put the ImageTarget on the phone but when I ran it I got...

"Network connection required to initialize camera settings. Please check your connecetion and restart the application. If you are still experiencing problems, then your device may not be currently supported."

I've tried it with and without the WiFi turned on...

So confirmed that Droid is not supported ;-)

Any idea when?

Once you run the app from Eclipse it should be installed and show up alongside your other applications. You can also explicitly drag the apk file onto your sdcard if you want a backup, just mount your sdcard first.

Kim,

thanks for info. Strange, because there was no such error as you mentioned. With WiFi it will be problem, because dev soft I have at work and WiFi at home :)

I tried several times and I am always getting error about network connection... I will try to test it at home... is there any solution how to copy this generated apk file to phone? Or is it already stored in phone ?

The Galaxy S is not currently supported. That said, you should be seeing the "Failed to initialize QCAR because this device is not supported" message, instead of the connection failed message. Could you try once more today and let me know if you have the same results? Also, if it's possible to get on WiFi could you try that as well?

Thanks,

Should WiFi be enabled? Right now is 3G/HSPA.

Hello,

I understand that if I am owner of Galaxy S it will be not working?

Evertything is working, but when I am launching app in Eclipse I got info:

[2011-01-14 12:18:03 - ImageTargets] Android Launch!
[2011-01-14 12:18:03 - ImageTargets] adb is running normally.

and on the screen:

"Network connection required to initialize camera settings. Please check your connecetion and restart the application. If you are still experiencing problems, then your device may not be currently supported."

Strange... network connection is fine...

Was the Nexus S support added in the original 0.10.0 release?
Been having some problems with that.

EDIT: Just ignore this post. Saw the answer in another.

The QCAR SDK only works on supported devices, but this includes non-Qualcomm hardware. For instance the Droid 2 and Droid X both use OMAP processors, and the Nexus S uses a Hummingbird processor. We will be adding more devices throughout the beta. At the end of the beta all Android devices will be supported, assuming the hardware meets a minimum set of requirements (processor speed, OpenGL support, camera support, etc.)
