the theory behind image tracking is explained quite well at https://developer.vuforia.com/library/articles/Solution/Natural-Features-and-Ratings.
This shows the analysis of the images and respectively show the features of the image that are recognized by Vuforia (in those yellow indicators).
It is not possible to analyze my targets and actually show those yellow indicators, without having to upload my targets to Vuforia.
Wish-list: maybe stand-alone software? Or plug-ins for Photoshop and/or Illustrator? I would like to analyze (and actually see the results of that analysis) and edit my images at the same time.
Unreal Engine 4 integration both in C++ and blueprints plugin...
Have no intention of even considering using vuforia untill you support what the vast majority wants!
standalone support - PC applications.
Please add the ability to run web browsers Vuforia PCs to export projects from unity . Also add the ability to export standalone applications for Windows and OSX environments . Thank you
Several other posts talked about it but not sure if it is in the wish list. Any way a bump cann't hurt.
Multiple identical marker. One marker that can be used in the scene multiple times.
(Right now when you have duplicate markers only one will be used)
Think army men.
right now it would be:
if you want more troops, you have to code more in rather than just simply printing more. :(
*if anyone thinks they can hack this feature in shoot me a message. At this point its a feature I would pay for.
in the online Target Manager I can see a column "Last Reco" that shows the last time a cloud target was detected (see screenshot). This is a very informative field to show in custom target-management dashboards.
It would be great to expose the "Last Reco" field for a cloud target in the VWS.
I would love to see improvements to the Calibration App for digital eyewear. I found out that a good calibration is probably the most important step to guarantee a good user experience. Here are some suggestions:
Thank you for looking into these, the Calibration App could definitly be improved.
Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 support, please (Unity3d extension)!!
I totally agree --> There are many AR products which need bigger displays, more flexibility in Hardware...
This is not given with the mobile platforms at the moment.
Need Desktop Support Windows 8.1 & Windows 10 would be awesome!!! (from Unity3D)
I need to group the wished image targets into several groups than apply different value of -maximum simultanous tracked object- to each group.
sometimes developer need to separate image target and limiting the number of maximum tracked targets on each group.
for example:group of objects with tag "flower" and group of objects with tag "food", with maximum 1 tracked target for each group..(2 maximum tracked in total at the same time)
tagging/grouping the targets is not a problem, but how can this be possible while developers cant access anything inside QCARBehaviour.cs (to modify the maximum simultanous tracked object to each group)
it will help limiting target for many purpose especially creating games..
or at least make a public variable of it.. so developers can access it in ARCamera.
wish this will be Vuforia new feature..
Windows Phone support
Also: +1 for a real offline plan
As the list of databases grows it get's a little unruly. It'd be nice to be able to remove old db's that are no longer used.
Grouping databases in an accordion style list (collabsable groups) would be pretty handy for organization.
I'd love to be able to get the "percent occluded" for each trackable. Right now, Vuforia does a great job of recognizing an imageTarget when a good portion of it is obstructed, however, there are times when I would like to not show my augmentations when sometime is mostly (e.g. more than 50%) hidden. This could be as simple as returning the ratio of points found from the original image target. Even though this would assume a uniform distribution of points, it would still be helpful.
Thanks for a fantastic product!
• Target manager and License manager should include options to delete old or unwanted databases/licenses.
• Face detection.
• Markerless AR on highly reflective surface objects. (I'll just call it "cars" since that's what so many of us are chasing. Metaio had this pretty good before they were acquired by Apple. Would love to see a solid & robust option from Qualcomm!)
• License plan which offers a one-time payment to do unlimited offline reco apps. (The current plan is much better than what it was at the launch of 4.0 but still somewhat cost prohibitive to indie developers.)
The posibility to use external web camera on android (this is very important sice vuforia doesn't work with windows, some times you need to have a camera pointing to a position where the rear camera or face camera can't see, and the posibility to have a webcamera attached to the android device can fullfill this scenarios).
Other request if is possible is implement a track algorithm like metaio had, for cad tracking I tried the one that has vuforia, but I think it was more robust the one that metaio had.
Markerless AR (example: SLAM of metaio) and GPS tracking/marker on UNITY 3D!! Other competitor have it!
I am to give the pre-recorded video for detecting markers in it..!
Offline creation of Tracking images directly in the app based on simple local image files (.jpg).
VWS api to manage device database (create database, add/delete target...) like cloud database.
Standalone apps for Mac OSX!This is a must for making augmented reality experiences that works with a fixed camera on a single place.
it would be really (extremely nice) useful if the pre-processing of the camera frames is implemented one day (like right now :) )
also I think that feeding vuforia with custom videos or sequences would expand the kind of applications that one can develop.
finally I would love that vuforia expand to other platforms adn not only mobile.
[UNITY] When application size is too big and we use split binary it would be useful if the media player could load the videos from the OBB .
public void setDataSource (FileDescriptor fd)
Save and keep User Defined Target somewhat similar to Image Target.
Stand alone for WIndows Desktop would be great, given Surface would be an ideal platform for us.
+1 Access to get/set camera exposure on iOS. This is vital as users expect a screen tap to *both* set focus and exposure on a live camera view in iOS.
Standalone applications for Windows (PC and mobile)
+1 Support for PC standalone in Unity3D
Dear Vuforia Team, Unreal Engine 4 Integration please, please!
Hello, could you please make it possible to change the position of the Vuforia watermark on device screens (Unity), maybe to different corners of the screen please?
Please add an API access to the Target Manager for Device Databases!
I have created AR apps in Google Glass using Vuforia Android SDK.It works fine.But at times,the camera hangs or just renders a black screen throwing "Unable to open camera device" error.It would be good if the digital eyewear SDK could support complete development of AR apps in Google Glass.
Sorry, I don't find how to delete my duplicated post!
Number recognition 0 - 9I can't believe that Vuforia could track 3D objects and not simply 2D numbers!!!
