Front Facing camera image tracking

February 20, 2019 - 12:51pm #1

Hey guys, I know that Vuforia used to support the front facing camera but it doesn't anymore. Does anyone know of a different technology that's available that would allow me to track images via the front facing camera? I know that ARCore doesn't support it (they only support the regular camera for image tracking) and I'm not sure about ARKit, but it seems they may only support Face Recognition with the front camera.

Any ideas? Maybe I could use an old version of Vuforia that supports it? If I did that, would I have limitations in the devices I could build to since I'd be using an old version of the plugin?

Hello,

Support for front camera has been marked as deprecated since Vuforia Engine SDK 7.2.20: https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Release_Notes/Vuforia-SDK-Release-Notes.html

It is still part of the 8.0.10 SDK, but with caveats on ubiquitous device support.

Thanks,

Vuforia Engine Support
