I urge the Vuforia development team to increase the robustness of Vuforia API. It's the Vuforia API that convinced me to use your product. But like all frameworks, I immediately bumped its limits.
For example, the Vuforia 3d scanning tool use is limited. My application requires unique feature point extraction when building a dataset for a 3d object target. Such that I want to build my own custom 3D scanning tool. In particular, I need five independent, detectable regions of a single 3d object.
I suspect there are many developers that require an extensible AR framework that adapts to every application possibility.
Only a rich API of low level and high level functions can satisfy our needs. If you make the API too simple (e.g. Wikitude, etc.), then it will always remain a toy. And not a professional developer's go to framework.
Provide low level functions to manage collections of feature extraction points during target dataset creation.
Provide feature extraction points that discern color contrast for object pattern recognition.
We live in a colorful world, yet it seems your feature extraction functions rely exclusively on luminosity -- and not hue.
