A trackable, also known as a target, is a key element of vision-based AR.

Getting quality rating for "on the fly" created targets

January 10, 2020 - 2:34am #1



the new feature for creating targets from files and textures at runtime is fantastic and was the last thing missing to make Vuforia really the best AR Tool.


It would be nice to have a rating for a runtime created ImageTarget  like the 0 to 5 stars from the Web TargetManager Platform or something similar, like 0 to 1 or 0 to 100 percent or something.

Counting the number oi times each target is scanned?

January 2, 2020 - 7:20pm #1

I need help because I need to be able to know the number of times each target has been scanned or "reco'd" as it is referred by vuforia. However, as it is now I do not know of any way this is accomplished other than looking at the "licence manager" and "target manager" in the developer portal. These are severely limited because they only give a total number of recos as opposed to an in depth view of date, time, number, per month, per year, etc. and I need to know that "in depth" data.

recommended to add user decision results

I suggest adding a callback that tacker results , lets the user decide whether to accept, rather than notify.Now we can only accept the tacker result, not reject it

I've been trying to contact Vuforia sales for a large international client. I've been submitting requests on the form a few months back but never heard back from sales. Could someone help me to get a person to discuss purchasing a license.

Capturing 360 degrees of a 3D Object

December 16, 2019 - 3:54am #1

So I have downloaded the Vuforia capture app (for 3D objects) and from what I can tell I am limited by what I can capture. For instance, the bottom of the object is never scanned. So when routerlogin  I'm testing, the tracking will stop whe whatsapp web n I flip the ob n ject over. Is there a way to do multiple 3D scans (one right-side up and one upside-down) and then combine them so I can seamlessly track an entire object?

Unable to update target image in portal

I am not able to update image of the cloud targets added in vuforia. However I can add that same image as a new target but updating any old target image is not working. I have attached the error screenshot that I get when I try to update image.

Device Tracker in Stereo mode

November 27, 2019 - 1:23am #1

Hi. I am developing a marker based AR application in full screen and stereo mode in two separate scenes using Vuforia. I want to enable Device Tracker but although in simple mode it works perfectly, in stereo it makes the virtual object "fly" over the image target.

Is there any solution?

Thank u
