Nalin,

thanks for pointing this out. I tried it, but it leads to exactly the same memory leak.

I just imported the "Background Texture Access" demo into a fresh Unity project and made no other modifications than changing the Target Resolution in Player Settings to 768p (iPad).

The same behaviour as described in the other two posts can be observed!

Best,

Stefan

Hello I want to request that future release of Vuforia versions will support user defined target which allow the user to specify some points and Vuforia will use those points to contruct the camera pose estimation for rendering. 

thanks

Since Vuforia is based on StudierStube, I would like to get the raw marker pose, not the filtered one. 

In StudierStube Target.h, there is an enum:

enum POSE_TYPE {
	TYPE_RAW,
	TYPE_FILTERED
};

To get the raw data, you need to call this:

target->getGLMatrix(modelViewMatrix, StbTracker::Target::TYPE_RAW); 

instead of 

target->getGLMatrix(modelViewMatrix, StbTracker::Target::TYPE_FILTERED); 

Also, you need to call this:

target->setFilterStrength(0.0, 0.0, 0);

Please expose this feature to the user.

This would be a great fix for the problem (marker de-recogntion delay) I am experiencing here:

The addition of the text tracker is a nice feature.  A nice enhancement would be to recognize regexes in addition to the current whitelist/blacklist.  For instance, enabling the recognition of phone numbers, URLs, email addresses etc that are partially freeform but parseable.

In addition, while you're in the business of adding trackers, it would be nice to have built-in trackers for QR code and bar codes, turning them into first-class targets instead of us having to rely on the current "go integrate zxing" hacks.  The required image conversion step really kills performance.

I also think some better access to the camera would be nice.  We often find ourselves wanting to capture a higher quality image than the video preview.

Make it possible to get the color of the camera-image so that I can easily tint the lights in my scene so that my augmentation gets more integrated with the real world.

I know that the String AR framework as someway of doing this by accessing the MarkerInfo.color values.

Per StringAR documentation:
"color:

Represents the average color of the detected marker in the frame, relative to the loaded marker image. In other words, if your camera captured a frame in which colors corresponded exactly to the original marker image, youʼd get {1, 1, 1}.

If the ambient light is warm, you might get something like {1.2, 1, 0.9} for example. How you use this is up to you. For some types of content, it can be used to imitate real- word ambient lighting conditions to great effect. "

I tryed my own implementation ( as seen on https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/unity-3-extension-technical-discussion/tune-access-cameras-color ) but you'll get a performance-hit.

 

I found some ways of doing this more performance-proof like http://www.bobbygeorgescu.com/2011/08/finding-average-color-of-uiimage/ but this has access directly to iOS. Is it in anyway for you, guys @ Vuforia, to make possible something like this. Maybe mimmic in some way what can be achieved with the StringAR color values?

Currenlty voforia doesn't support multiple occurances of the same frame marker, all the markers visible need to have an unique id.

Example use case: board game like chess, where there are several instances of the same piece (like 8 white pawns) that are ideally represented by the same marker.

No news I know of. It has to do with investment and  licensing  issues I am sure. Fact: Qualcomm bought the source code and exclusive rights for StudierStube ES for mobile platforms. This makes sense as AR requires a lot of processing power and Qualcomm is in the business of making cpu/gpu's for mobile devices. Investing in another expensive source license to support desktop AR for them doesn't make sense. 
 
Just my guess.
 
But not to worry. I am working on an AR engine wrapper which will solve this issue.

-More robust raw marker data acquisition in Unity. I would like to have an array which only holds the marker transform and its ID, only of the current markers in view and based on a camera with an identity transform. Currently if I create markers from code, Vuforia creates a game object for each marker. This creates a lot of overhead if many markers are used and it clogs up the Hierarchy view in the Editor. Additionaly not regarding the raw markers as game objects would solve the issue that the marker pose changes if the camera transform changes, which requires a complex setup procedure to make UCS work. Another script can turn the raw marker pose into a game object so generic ease-of-use is maintained,but it shouldn't be part of the Vuforia kernel as it were.

-Ability to set the world center mode using a script (before Vuforia needs it to be locked down), not only via the Editor.

 

Mac and PC desktop build support

Hi,

Has there been any movment on providing Mac and PC desktop builds?

I don't understand why this hasn't been supported, especially as it works in the editor. Its a major sticking point for using vuforia and is forcing us to evaluate alternatives, which is a real shame as for most cases vuforia is perfect for our needs.

It would be great if the Vuforia team would consider adding support for Android boards or media players with USB webcams. On all the devices I've tested it works to some extent, but it doesn't seem like there are any profiles to support various cameras like in the editor with a webcam. As a result the video feed is always low quality and tracking isn't as robust as with devices that do have official support.

Following the many SLAM requests, I'll add a slighter easier feature to the wish list, i.e. "visual odometry" (otherwise called "markerless tracking" in other posts). In practice, it would be nice if one could estimate the 3D pose of a camera with respect to a given frame of reference, not necessarily building a map of the environment, even if the estimation suffers of cumulative errors.

It would be great if we could control the camera image that is feed to Vuforia. For instance, we could pull the camera feed, filter it in some fashion, and push it to the augmentation engine.

Or we could have a saved stream that could be "replayed" to Vuforia.

 

 

something else that would be interesting is to have better control over the cameraDevice - namely the light reaction aperture.

 

Something that comes in mind right ahead is the possibility to apply computational filters to reduce glares - it is very hard to recognize trackers made on glossy surface, but there are algorithms that help reduce glaring, or augmenting contrasts.

 

Also, tweaking light exposure or programmatically giving the option to the user to adjust camera light exposure could end up in better tracking depending on where the user is. Or this could be controlled by the device's light sensor or computed from CameraImage processing.

For instance, sometimes vuforia won't track a target that is very visible. Blocking the camera with your hand for half a second (causing it to react to darkness, then brightness) would make Vuforia begin to track *while the camera is adjusting to light* ... can't we make this purposely by software???

 

I find it is hard to track in lower light environment such as subway or cafés, and sometimes also in high brightness environment such as outdoor in full sunshine, the camera doesn't necessarily react properly and some trackers are washed off.

This is even more the case when we are using less than 4-star trackers - I know in a perfect world we'd have controlled lighting and 5-star images, but reality doesn't always permit that and having control over the way data is fed to the recognition engine could improve results - for those who wants to use it.

Summary: Pass an arbitrary Texture2D, at runtime, to the ImageTarget Builder.

In the UserDefined demo, it seems to be taking the whole frame from the video and building an ImageTarget from it. I need to be able to pass in a portion of the frame, and after some other operations are done to it. I've seen other comments about taking a portion of a frame to use as an imagetarget from others. So...I think the feature that covers this and other simular things would be to pass in an arbitrary Texture2D to the ImageTarget Builder.
