Groundplane API

August 14, 2018 - 12:55am #1

I am using vuforia groundplane together with ARcore.

It is working perfectly but I am looking for the API to know if the app is ready to place a object?

 

I want to show a message on my users screen that tells them to scan the enviroment.

When vuforia has enough data they can place it. But how can I tell that vuforia has enough data?

 

And is there some kind of debug mode like in ARkit? Some kinds of surfaces or points or whatevern?

Hello,

Rotating the AR object attached to the Ground Plane is demonstrated as a furniture placement use case in the same sample app.

I don't believe rotating the Ground Plane is possible, and I'm not sure why this would be desired. If you can provide some additional detail about your use case, I can provide this back to our product and engineering teams for evaluation.

Thanks,

Vuforia Engine Support

Hi there,



 

Thanks for your comment. I did find the automatic hittest and when this function is called i guess vuforia has enough data.



There is another question i can't finger out and that is letting the groundplane rotate towards the camera.



I tried many codes and it doesn't seem that hard but somehow it won't work in vuforia. Can you tell me the exact steps to rotate a groundplane towards the camera?

Hello,

Have you reviewed our Core Samples as a reference? https://developer.vuforia.com/downloads/samples The reticle in the Ground Plane sample code will change appearance as an indicator to the user that a surface has been found.

Here's a good overview of the Ground Plane feature that discusses key concepts and useability features, some of which have been implemented in the samples: https://library.vuforia.com/articles/Training/ground-plane-guide.html

Thanks,
