How to know when Vuforia is READY to provide a good ground plane experience?

February 16, 2018 - 2:30pm #1

If a physical environment has few features, the positioning of a 3D model on a ground plane will give a very poor and jittery experience.

 

Is there any way to tell if Vuforia has adequate features detected to being placement? So that the User could be notified when Vuforia is READY to provide a good experience for ground plane?

 

thanks

Agreed, it needs to be "idiot proof". And this is not "nice to have", but "must have".

I agree that this is a critical bit of feedback. Alot of AR apps that have already been published that us ARKIT have the ability to show dots on the plane to represent "quality". 

Seems like something similar - or at minimum some form of value that could be polled to provide feedback to the user.

I've found that in many cases where lighting isn't ideal or the surface isn't ideal, it can take a while for the plane to be detected and show the placement marker. I'm concerned that without some form of feedback, the user may give up or think that the app isn't working. Not everyone will know what tricks to do either like sweeping the device across the entire area slowly or moving it in and out.

The more "idiot proof" it can be, the better. Feedback helps minimize frustration. 

Any comments or feedback Vuforia team? Surely there's something we can implement on this?
