Qualcomm on real object

April 30, 2012 - 9:11am #1

Hi all,

All of the examples of qualcomm toolkit that I've seen are on images not on real objects. I mean the images are markers upload to qualcomm and become trackables (with certain quality). This is fine and working great. I wonder if anything that can be done for real objects not on images? I did take the snapshot of real objects and then upload to make it become trackables with certain quality, but my app still can't run with real object?

Any idea how to achieve this with qualcomm at all?

Thanks

Hello DavidBeard

 

Can you explain with more detail this instruction "Try to take the photo w/ the center of the lense aligned with the center of the target surface you're using, and such that the planes of the surface and camera lense are parallel"  ??

I am new in Vuforia and I have a lot of problems :(  

Thanks

The surface that you're targeting will need to be flat and have sufficient detail to be detectable - but yes, you'd do this by taking a photo and uploading that to the TMS. Try to take the photo w/ the center of the lense aligned with the center of the target surface you're using, and such that the planes of the surface and camera lense are parallel. You want as little perspective disortion as possible. You can also rectify the image in Photoshop, which has a tool for doing this.

Hi!

I´m very interesting in this topic.

How do you do it?

Do you take a photo of sugar bag? 

Thanks!

I did it with a real object, a bag of sugar. Take a look.

If Vuforia could work with multiple image tracking(such as a video) then it could work.

The background would need to be consistant or ignored by the tracking software.

Vuforia is meant for tracking planar images (or 3D objects made up of planar images, such as a cereal box). The only way you'll be able to track the 3D object is if the user looks at it from the exact same perspective at which you took the photo (in the same lighting conditions, etc.) This is unlikely, so in general tracking arbitrary 3D objects is not recommended.
