Cloud Reco Samples - Reco Count

April 3, 2014 - 1:16am #1

The Cloud Recognition samples of the SDK release 2.8.7 (native samples version 2.8.8, Unity samples version 2.8.9) show how to start a Cloud search for target recogniton, using a sample DB.

In particular, the samples make use of the TargetFinde::start() API, by which the sample will enter a search mode where your Cloud Database is scanned for a possible target match. See also these pages for more details on Cloud Reco API usage:

Cloud Reco - Using Target Metadata

May 6, 2013 - 3:50am #1


This article highlights the meaning and usage best practices for Cloud Targets Metadata.

In Vuforia, every Cloud Image Target has an associated Metadata; a target metadata is nothing else than a custom (user-defined) string, i.e. a blob of text that you can fill with any text you like.

Therefore, you can use the metadata just as a way to contain some information about the target, that your application will be able to process using some custom logic.

Delay in Status changes to TRACKED

July 23, 2019 - 2:40am #1


I'm using Unity 2018.2.6f1 with Vuforia 8.0.10.

When the CloudHandler gets a NewSearchResult it instantiates a new ImageTargetBehaviour. Just after that the ITrackableEventHandler that we have implemented receive the OnTrackableStateChanged event with NO_POSE as parameters. The OnTrackableStateChanged with TRACKED as parameter only fires after a few seconds of pointing to the target.

Why is this delay happening? Is there any way to avoid it?

Monthly Reco Usage

July 13, 2019 - 6:53pm #1

Hi, reading about the Basic+Cloud plan and its allowed usage of 10,000 reco's a month and then a charge of .01 per reco. 10,000 recos in an app with multiple targets and a decent userbase would be chewed up very fast i feel. What happens if you need 1,000,000 recos a month? That means a charge of $10,000 a month would be applicable which is not viable.
