Hi all,

Please use this thread as a place to consolidate feature requests for the QCAR SDK. If there is something missing that is holding back your development efforts, we'd like to know about it! If you're having trouble with an existing feature and would like more sample code to help you get started, we'd like to know about that too.

Looking forward to your input, thanks!

Our AR headset needs to be tethered to a workstation PC where the actual work is being done all day (which will be the case for many real-world applications).

Vuforia needs to work on desktops and laptops please!

Hello @CeciLisCosta,

Have you reviewed our External Camera feature? https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/external-camera.html


Vuforia Engine Support

Wish List

I wish I could be able to feed vuforia with frames from another source than directly from the camera. It would make Vuforia more generic for some devices which does not offer full compatibitity.

Wish List - low level feature point functions

October 18, 2018 - 1:52pm #635


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.

There is a high demand for combining Ground Plane and Image Targets. It should be able to get the Image Target location in Ground Plane and vice versa.

This would have mulltiple use cases, as discussed in this thread: https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/ground-plane/combining-ground-plane-and-image-targets

20000+ vies already.

Simple search feature for Target Manager

August 23, 2018 - 3:02am #632


It's hard to manage a large number of targets via the target manager (web interface) without any simple search functionality.

Simplest solution

Add a additional select option to the pagination dropdown list to show all targets (this is limited to 200 at the moment).

This way someone who has to manage large amounts of targets (like me) can at least use the browser search function to find a uniq target without the effort of paginating through N pages.

Better solution

Add a simple search bar (doesn't have to be fuzzy for now) to search for a exactly match of the target name.

e.g. searching for my_target_1 will only show my_target_1

Even better solution

Add a fuzzy search bar to return a collection of everything that could be interesting.

e.g. searching for my_target* will show my_target_1, my_target_2, ...

Very much agree, particularly about the 3D point cloud!

- ARCore publishes its internal point cloud

- ARKit publishes its internal point cloud

- Smart Terrain has been deprecated

So if an application wants to do hit-testing against the real world, Vuforia Fusion + Ground Plane sounds like a good option, but in practice it is not usable (please correct me if I'm wrong). Instead, developers have to revert to the underlying platform-specific libraries.. Please add this as a feature to 7.2!

Publishing the 2D points is also useful: then we can give better feedback to the user about the usability of the current environment for tracking.

QRCode recognition would be a highly useful feature, This could give developers the ability to place 3D content against unkown QR codes to give functionality eg to go to link in QR code by pressing 3D button.

I think the delete database function is a fundamental need.

The only reason I can think about for not having this feature is that Vuforia is not actually deleting the targets I've uploaded and you need the databases to index them.

In other words, my suspicious is that instead of removing my pics you're just adding a isDeleted=true field in the DB.

I really wish the viewforia forums would stop with the inverse-response style forums. The posts are in reverse-chronological order which just makes no sense! I guess you guys did it so that the answer to the question in the OP would be at the top of the page (assuming the answer would be the final post in the thread) but more often than not the final post is some offhand context-less answer and you need to trawl through the thread anyway just to find the original question was nothing like the on you were asking. You guys could maybe use the stack-overflow model? I'm pretty sure they whitelabel that platform...

Standalone Support for MacOS

December 22, 2017 - 5:29am #607

This is a feature we are waiting for for a very long time now. I cannot understand why standalone builds are not possible. Vuforia works in the Play mode of the Unity editor pretty well, so this has to be an intentional decision instead of a technical limitation.

Just took a look at the unreleased Unity Beta. Noticed addition of Positional Device Tracking.

My vote would definitely be this:

#1) Replace roational/positional tracking model correction with ARKit & ARCore tracking (just their rotational tracking & positional IMU tracking implementations, if their full visual SLAM is too heavy to run in the background of Vuforia). I noticed the addition of Positional Device Tracking in the unreleased Unity Beta 2017.2.0b10. Really looking excited and hoping this doesn't just mean adding Hololens compatibility.

#2) Unreal Engine. This is a must for us to keep using Vuforia. With ARCore & ARKit now on Unreal Engine, we can no longer afford to do future projects in Unity anymore, so this means making due with ARKit/ARCore World Tracking until Vuforia Image Tracking arrives in Unreal Engine. The graphics in Unity are just too cheap-looking for our client demos.

It would be nice to have an access to the text recognition string for the unidentified words, so there would be a way to scan strings that were not added to the list (sometimes it is not possible to add all strings that you want to be detected by text recognition - like codes that are going to be send to backend to check if they are valid to be used).

Thank you!

Definitely Unreal Engine should be on the to-do list, guys.

The good looks of UE4 graphics combined with the excellent tracking of Vuforia would make a nice duo.
