|Short Intro||Multi-target detection, target tracking, virtual buttons, Smart TerrainTM, and Extended Tracking are some of the features of Vuforia SDK. Vuforia supports the detection of several kinds of targets (e.g. objects, images, English text). Especially for image recognition purposes Vuforia allows apps to use databases that are either local on the device or in the Cloud, The platform is available for Android, iOS and Unity.|
|License||Free with watermark + Commercial SDK option|
|Commercial SDK Pricing||99$ per month including vuforia cloud|
$499 one-time without cloud
|Supported Platforms (Deployment)||iOS, Android, Windows|
|Digital Eyewear Support||Yes Epson Moverio BT-200, Samsung GearVR, and ODG R-6 and R-7) also support Microsoft HoloLens|
|Virtual button support||Yes Allow us to create touchable zones in our tracking image.|
|Supported Platforms (Development)||Windows / MAC /Linux|
|Supporting Software||No direct plugin available but you can load content through Unity.|
|Marker based AR||Support natural Image, frame markers , cylindrical and box shape
objects, small size 3D objects as marker (Advanced marker detection
Support VU-Mark tagging for 3D object detection.
|Marker less AR||Yes User defined Target support|
|Location based AR||No|
|Cloud Support||Yes enables developers to host and manage Image Targets online. Vuforia Cloud API also available.|
|ImageTarget (Marker) Generation||Online target manger.|
|3D Object Tracking||- Applicable only for small size 3D objects like toy.|
|3D Content Rendering||Yes Support 3D content Overlay and interactions.|
|Supporting 3D formats||Mostly all like, .obj, .fbx, .3ds, .cinema4D etc.|
|Detection Rate||Detection rate is very fast and real time in both cases i.e. device
based detection and cloud based detection.|
Device Based : Less than 3 sec.
Cloud Based: 3-5 Sec
|Rendering quality (Augmentation)||Augmented content is less stable as compare to ARMedis. Bit Shakiness is there.|
|Content storage and API||Vuforia Cloud based storage support|
|Visual Search||Yes Cloud recognition online support thousands of ImageTargets. On-device offline recognition support up to 100 ImageTargets|
|AR Tracking||Variety of 2D and 3D target types which also includes marker-less
Image Targets, singly track-able 3D Multi-Target and cylindrical
Also supports Frame Marker a form of Fiduciary Marker.
Other features of the SDK include localized Occlusion Detection using Virtual Buttons. It allows user to pick an image at runtime through user defined targets.
|Noticeable Features||1. Provide faster local detection of targets with capacity of
tracking 5 targets simultaneously.|
2. Efficient tracking in low light conditions and even though target is covered partially.
3. Extended tracking capabilities.
