New to AR - Measure building height using Vuforia?

September 18, 2015 - 8:04am #1

Hi all,

I'm new to AR and very excited with the technology. I have a project requirement that I need to measure the height of buildings, is that something I could accomplish using the Vuforia SDK and AR?

Thanks,

George

What you can do with a big enough target would be:

  • Get the distance between your target and the device, this sometimes is not accurate enough depending on the device
  • Set the target size in your database in real units eg. 2 meters target and from that set some augmentation which covers the building and depending on the scale that would be the size

This use case does not seem to be a perfect fit for AR because also for more precision you would need to have the whole building in a single frame and if extended tracking is required you may lose some precision too.
