Vuforia Ground Plane Scaling Solution

August 6, 2018 - 11:12pm #1

I hope you are doing well. It's been a while since Vuforia released the new promising Vuforia Ground Plane system, but I feel like it is not getting any major updates after the first release. I wonder where this project is going, and if this project is just going to be deprecated soon because of the ascendance of AR Kit and AR Core(although they're supposed to work in sync). I really want to use it my project, but I am having to create my own scripts for things like rotating and scaling, which are supposed to be basic supported features.

I did not want to scale the actual placed content, so I tried emulating how Unity devs found a solution to scaling in their older AR Interface project, but no luck. And even people who emulated their way of scaling by manipulating the Camera transform state that it leaves a lot to be desired. Is there any robust solution to this problem?

Thanks.

There is no plan to deprecate Ground Plane support. Vuforia Fusion is a capability that is designed to provide the best possible AR experience on a wide range of devices. It senses the capabilities of the underlying device and fuses them with Vuforia Engine features, allowing developers to rely on a single Vuforia Engine API for an optimal AR experience. This is where Vuforia believes it provides value to developers.

Vuforia provides sample apps which demonstrate a feature's basic use cases. The Ground Plane sample's user experience, in the furniture placement use case, demonstrates how to rotate and reposition a virtual chair.

If you're looking for updates to the existing samples and/or documentation, please be more specific about your use case and what you're trying to solve that Vuforia currently does not provide (scripts? APIs? etc.).

Thanks,

Vuforia Engine Support
