cyindrical target recognition is way off image target

November 23, 2020 - 12:01pm #5

Hi, similar to this thread:


I have 4 or 5 stars when using image target, but 0 stars when using a cylindrical target. I tried to use the image target as make my AR cylinder adjusted meshes, but AR gets really jumpy in some frames.


Any idea on how to adjust to get a better tacking in cylindrical target?

Can we save Cylinder Targets in Cloud Database?

August 7, 2019 - 8:13pm #5

Hi everyone,

It seems the Cloud database can only accept and store Image Targets.

1. Is it possible to add a Cylinder Target to a Cloud database?

2. If this is not possible- are there APIs to access and manipulate Device database?

Thank you.

Warm regards,

Cylinder dataset loading

July 3, 2019 - 5:02am #4


I am dynamically loading a dataset containing cylinder targets. The dataset is loaded correctly, but the database and cylinder targets fields remain empty.

The loading with a simple image targets dataset is working very good but I can't figure it out why it is not working with cylinders !

Has anyone ever encountered this kind of issue ?

Thank you in advance,

How different do similar targets need to be?

April 30, 2019 - 8:21pm #2

Hello! At the moment I have two cylinder targets that are pretty similar. They share the same logo but have a different heading. My question is is how different to targets have to be for Vuforia to know 100% which ones which? Because at the moment its get them mixed up and uses the wrong target.

Cylinder vs Image target

April 3, 2019 - 7:39am #2



I'm trying to track a bottle label and can't get satisfying results.


When I use image tracking I'm getting really good image detection. Like 90% of the time it catches the label straight after pointing the camera on it. But it has horrible tracking afterwards. My virtual object is shaking and dropping so much that it's unacceptable, even with smooth camera script.
