I need to detect real car from all angles through AR

August 2, 2017 - 7:55am #1

I need to detect real car from all angles through AR. I am trying to implement it with unity game engine and vuforia sdk. We face some problem.

1. We want to use cloud database in vuforia as we want to control database (i.e adds target, modify target) through the server. But  vuforia cloud database only supports image target database. No 3D Object database (. old file) cannot upload into cloud database.

2. If we use device database, then we will able the upload 3d Object database (.od file) for the target object. But we are not able to create .od file through “Vuforia Object Scanner” Android app for real car. As “Vuforia Object Scanner” uses for toys or small 3d object scans.

So how I detect the real car through AR. Any suggestion will be helpful for me. Thank you.

Hello DTSDilip,

You are correct that a cloud database can only be used with image targets. However, you can load datasets from an external location, such as an SD card. This page contains some information on loading a dataset from the SD Card: https://library.vuforia.com/content/vuforia-library/en/articles/Solution/Working-with-Vuforia-and-Unity.html#load-dataset (the section titled "How To Load a DataSet from the SD Card in Unity").

If you have the DAT/XML stored on a server, you could download them to your SD card and then follow the steps in the above link.

For your second question, our upcoming Model Targets feature might better address your app needs. This feature is currently available in our Early Access Program(EAP) and will be commercially available in a future Vuforia release. You can apply for the EAP and learn more about our VIP program that guarantees EAP access at this link: http://info.vuforia.com/modeltargets
