3D Ball like Color and Object Recognition

December 27, 2016 - 11:59pm #1


We are developing the AR app for the Study of Chemistry Elements. We have physical 3D objects\elements with us which are roughly the size 17-23 mm each. PFA an image of one object. Similarly, There are multiple ball shaped 3D objects with different color.

We are building project using Unity 3D and Vuforia.

We tried scanning it as suggested in Vuforia-Object-Scanner-Users-Guide. But we didn't got the result as expected.

We need to know,

1. Whether Vuforia is capable of identifying 3D objects of size 17-23mm?

2. Whether, it differentiate between, multiple 3D objects with same shape but different color?

3. Will it work with Sphere or Ball Shaped Smooth surface 3D object?


Can you please suggest some way out or how to make this work?


Please let us know at the earliest.

Thanks & Regards.

HI, did you find how to make a vuforia 3D object of a ball? trying to recognize a regular ball but couldn't

Vuforia's object recognition feature does not support discriminating objects by color.

Please refer to our guide for best practices on the types of objects that are supported: https://library.vuforia.com/articles/Training/Object-Recognition

"For Object Recognition to work well, the physical object should be opaque, rigid and contain few moving parts. The surface of the object should have contrast-based features. Pliable or deformable objects are not supported. Objects with articulating members are not supported as whole objects, but you can utilize the non-articulating regions of the object as an Object Target. Some good examples are toys such as action figures and vehicles."
