Latest LiDAR or TOF camera device support on Vuforia?

April 21, 2020 - 7:49pm #1

Hi~

 

Apple has recently released IPad pro 4 generation devices with LiDAR support camera, and SAMSUNG Galaxy S20 has TOF camera.

Does vuforia 9 support these light reflection checking time depth tracking functionality of these cameras?

 

What I know is .. that mobile image target can perceives 3DOF information only from image's state on camera, not tracking real distance from target.

 

Thanks for reading.

Best,

Hi,

As a general rule, Vuforia uses ARkit and ARCore to receive sensor data from the devices.

As soon as this new sensors provide data to ARKit and ARCore, Vuforia will leverage their capabilities.

For example, my understanding regarding the new Lidar sensor is that it is already providing information to ARKit hence GroundPlane should identify the planes faster.

This being said, the technology was just released and R&D is looking into leveraging this new tech as much as possible, for some features you may see improvements with 9.0.12, for others with coming versions.

Thank you.
