The Vuforia team is happy to announce new updates on how you can access the Model Target Generator, enhancements for Model Target testing, and new robust tracking for stationary devices. Below are the key updates in this release, please be sure to check out the release notes for the full list
- Offline Model Target Generator: Using a provided authentication token, developers can now use the new Offline Vuforia Model Target Generator. (For approved Pro Licenses only. Please contact support.)
- Model Target Scale Validation: When using Model Targets a new STATUS_INFO value WRONG_SCALE will be reported to alert the developer if the Model Target does not match the physical size of the object being tracked. This event can be processed at runtime or used just in the development process.
- Static Device Tracker: This is ideal for applications where the device will remain static, like on a tripod or an overhead camera on a workbench. There is no need for the device to first be in motion for tracking to start. Perfect for toys, books, or even maintenance scenarios that require the use of both hands.
