The team has been eagerly awaiting to announce Vuforia Engine 8.3, one of our smartest advancements with AR yet!
- Advanced Model Targets 360 - Recognition Powered by AI
- Brand New Model Target Generator Interface
- Improvements to Platform Specific Illumination Classes
- Upgrade to ARCore 1.7
Advanced Model Targets 360 can recognize a physical object at any angle, complete 360, without a guide view. A user just needs to approach an object and recognition and tracking will start instantly. Advanced Model Targets 360 uses Deep Learning and other powerful technologies to train a deep neural network in the Vuforia cloud. This game-changing new feature makes using AR easy and fast. To an end user, it simply just works.
The Model Target Generator UX has had a complete overhaul and many of the Model Target APIs have been consolidated for greater efficiency. All Advanced Model Targets will now also make use of the GPU acceleration on supported iOS and Android devices.
Color values in the Illumination Classes now support different platform specific sets of values depending on the Vuforia Fusion provider. A new STATUS_INFO value, INSUFFICENT_LIGHT, has been added to warn the user when there isn’t enough light available in a given scene.
