Restart Ground Plane hit test on non-ARkit devices

January 24, 2018 - 3:07pm #1

On Android and the older Iphones, I've noticed that it will keep tracking for the first attempt, and work pretty well - but as soon as it cant find the plane anymore, or you move, or resume the app, it will have a tough time tracking and wont respond to position. 

 

Is there anything I can call or a specific process to restart the tracking? So I can have a button that will re-attempt to find a ground plane?

 

Thanks.

Some form of restart / reset is critical IMHO - whether a device supports ARKIT or not.

For apps/games that may have different scenes, changing modes, etc, it'll be important for usability to be able to "recenter" or reset.

Sure hope this already exists somehow. Vuforia team - any ideas on how to accomplish this with what's already released?

Yes, we also have the exact same problem and it would be nice to have an answer. Further problem: After a while during the usage the ground plane finder begins to drift and rotate a bit (As if the gyroscope hung up somehow). Restarting the app solves this problem but resetting the Plane finder during usage would be better. Another problem is if we trigger the plane finder too often after the 10th or 20th attempt it doenst even appear anymore. The Objects attached to this option also appear in completely different locations (than where the finder is). We are using Unity and this might be a programming problem from our side but a reset / restart function for the planefinder / groundplane would solve the problem.

Just bumping this.

 

Anyone had any luck being able to restart the ground plane feature? The non-arkit devices are locked off to find one plane at the start of the app. The only way to find a different plane or attempt again is to restart the app. Ideally I'd be able to put a button in there that will reset the ground plane.
