Best way to target outside of a building....

April 19, 2021 - 2:09pm #2

I need to add an AR experience to a historical site.


Alot of the work will be inside, but we would also want to have outdoors experice.

The buildings I want to target are houses. Maybe 1 to 300 sq ft,

Users will be right next to them. SO, even targeting, lets say the front door is an option.


 What is your recomended approach to acheive this with Vuforia?


Thanks in advance

We have devs which tested Model Targets with bigger object like houses or stadium and successfully deployed the app.

On the other hand we also had developers which successfully used Area Targets outside (which is not recommended/supported).

Unfortunately there is no straight forward answer to your question as some features like Model Target and Area Targets are intended for other use-cases but can be used to achieve what you want.

I would advise to thouroughly test the features before deciding on what to use.

Here is an overview on the features from Vuforia to have a better understanding:

Thank you.
