Vuforia

Vuforia is an Augmented Reality Software Development Kit (SDK) for mobile devices that enables the creation of Augmented Reality applications.[1] It uses Computer Vision technology to recognise and track planar images (Image Targets) and simple 3D objects, such as boxes, in real-time.

This image registration capability enables developers to position and orient virtual objects, such as 3D models and other media, in relation to real world images when these are viewed through the camera of a mobile device. The virtual object then tracks the position and orientation of the image in real-time so that the viewer’s perspective on the object corresponds with their perspective on the Image Target, so that it appears that the virtual object is a part of the real world scene.

The Vuforia SDK supports a variety of 2D and 3D target types including ‘markerless’ Image Targets, 3D Multi-Target configurations, and a form of addressable Fiducial Marker known as a VuMark. Additional features of the SDK include localized Occlusion Detection using ‘Virtual Buttons’, runtime image target selection, and the ability to create and reconfigure target sets programmatically at runtime.[2]

Vuforia provides Application Programming Interfaces (API) in C++, Java, Objective-C++(a language utilizing a combination of C++ and Objective-C syntax), and the .Net languages through an extension to the Unity game engine.[3] In this way, the SDK supports both native development for iOS and Android while also enabling the development of AR applications in Unity that are easily portable to both platforms. AR applications developed using Vuforia are therefore compatible with a broad range of mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets running Android OS version 2.2 or greater and an ARMv6 or 7 processor with FPU (Floating Point Unit) processing capabilities.

Vuforia has been acquired by PTC Inc. in November 2015.

What your app can see

Using the Vuforia platform, your app can see a wide variety of things:

  • Object Recognition
  • Images
  • User Defined Images
  • Cylinders
  • Text
  • Boxes
  • VuMarks

Let’s have a look.

 Object Recognition

Object Recognition allows you to detect and track intricate 3D objects. It has been designed to work with toys (such as action figures and vehicles) and other consumer products.

Object Recognition can be used to build rich and interactive experiences with 3D objects. These experiences could be augmenting a toy with 3D content in order to bring it to life, overlaying a user manual on top of a consumer electronics device or leading a new employee through an interactive training process for a workplace device. Another simple application of Object Recognition is to unlock new in app content when a product is recognized.

Object Targets vs Image based targets

Object Targets are a digital representation of the features and geometry of a physical object. They are distinct from image based target types, such as Image Target, Multi Targets and Cylinder Targets that require the use of a planar source image. An Object Target is created by scanning a physical object using the Vuforia Object Scanner.

Target Type Target Source Recommended Uses
Image based targets planar images publications, packaging, flat surfaces
Object Targets feature scan toys, products, complex geometries

 Image Targets

Image Targets represent images that the Vuforia SDK can detect and track. Unlike traditional fiducial markers, data matrix codes and QR codes, Image Targets do not need special black and white regions or codes to be recognized. The SDK detects and tracks the features that are naturally found in the image itself by comparing these natural features against a known target resource database. Once the Image Target is detected, the SDK will track the image as long as it is at least partially in the camera’s field of view.

 User Defined Targets

User-defined targets are Image Targets that are created at runtime from camera frames selected by the user. They share most of the capabilities of a standard Image Target with the exception that they do not support Virtual Buttons. 

Supported Environments

User Defined Targets should be captured and viewed under moderately bright and diffuse lighting.  The surfaces of the object should be evenly lit. Indoor scenarios generally work well. 

Cylinder Targets

Cylinder Targets enable you to detect and track images rolled into cylindrical and conical shapes. They also support the detection and tracking of images on the flat top and bottom faces of the Cylinder Target.

You can create Cylinder Targets with the Vuforia Target Manager by defining the side length and diameters of the Cylinder Target and adding the images that you want to detect.

Vuforia Image
 

 Text Recognition

Vuforia can detect words that belong to a pre-defined word list. The SDK provides a list of 100,000 commonly used English words that you can incorporate into your Text Recognition apps. You can also define custom word lists and filters that block words from being recognized.

Supported characters

The Vuforia text recognition engine relies on the UTF-8 character encoding standard and is capable of recognising any character listed in Characters Supported by Text Recognition.

Multi-Targets

Muti-target example with dimensions
 

A Multi-Target consists of multiple Image Targets in a defined geometric arrangement. The position and orientation of each Image Target within a Multi-Target is defined relative to the origin of the Multi-Target, which is at its volumetric center.

All of the faces of a Multi-Target can be tracked at the same time because they possess a pre-defined pose relative to Multi-Target origin. This enables the entire Multi-Target to be tracked when any of its child targets has been detected. In this way, a Multi-Targets provides a common tracking reference for its child targets.  The corresponding TrackableResult (in this case a MultiTargetResult) provides a common pose, as opposed to the individual status and pose information provided for the individual Image Targets.

Oculus Medium Review And Speed Tests

Multi-targets are created by defining a relationship among multiple existing Image Targets using the Vuforia Target Manager or by directly manipulating the Dataset Configuration XML file. The spatial relationship of the individual parts is stored in the XML file using simple transformations.

Cuboid Target

A Cuboid Target is a simplified Multi-Target which allows developers to quickly create cube or box shaped Multi-Targets in the Target Manager. To create a Cuboid Target, you must specify the dimentions of the cuboid and database where the Image Targets will be placed. Once the Cuboid Target is created, you must specify the images of each of the six sides of the cuboid. The Images for each side are uploaded to the database specified when the Cuboid Target was created.

Supported Images

Multi Targets can be created with the Vuforia Target Manager using JPG or PNG images in RGB or grayscale. The size of the input images must 2 MB or less. Features extracted from these images are stored in a database, which can then be downloaded and packaged together with the application. The database can then be used by Vuforia for run time comparisons.

VuMark

VuMark is the next generation bar code. It allows the freedom for a customized and brand-conscious design while simultaneously encoding data and acting as an AR target. VuMark designs are completely customizable, so you can have a unique VuMark for every unique object. 

The VuMark provides a universal solution for delivering unique AR experiences on any object, while allowing the design freedom for a custom look and feel.  The VuMark also provides a simple method for encoding data such as an URL or a product serial number, and overcomes the limitations of existing matrix bar code solutions that do not support AR experiences and can detract from a product’s appearance.

VuMarks have application in both the enterprise and consumer markets. VuMarks are a game changer for the enterprise because they offer a scalable way to identify objects and overlay 3D step-by step instructions that indicate how to use them. This leads to significant cost savings for employees operating and servicing equipment.

In the consumer market, VuMarks offer a reliable way to recognize and track toys, electronics, and tools. Consumer brands can create 3D experiences that are designed to show how to use the product or to add value with new digital features.

VuMarks vs Image Targets

VuMarks provide some of the same capabilities as Vuforia ImageTargets, in that they can be individually recognized and tracked by the Vuforia SDK. Both can be used to create rich Augmented Reality experiences. 

But there are also significant differences that make VuMarks especially useful for many enterprise and consumer applications.

⦁    VuMarks can present millions of uniquely identifiable instances
⦁    VuMarks can encode a variety of data formats
⦁    VuMarks enable you to differentiate among identical looking products based on their Instance ID 

The same VuMark design can be used to encode a range of unique IDs or data. This is especially useful when you need to be able to use the same image universally, yet need for that image to possess a unique identity and/or information.

AR ToolKit

ARToolKit is an open-source computer tracking library for creation of strong augmented reality applications that overlay virtual imagery on the real world. Currently, it is maintained as an open-source project hosted on GitHub.[1] ARToolKit is a very widely used AR tracking library with over 160,000 downloads on its last public release in 2004.[2]

In order to create strong augmented reality, it uses video tracking capabilities that calculate the real camera position and orientation relative to square physical markers or natural feature markers in real time. Once the real camera position is known a virtual camera can be positioned at the same point and 3D computer graphics models drawn exactly overlaid on the real marker. So ARToolKit solves two of the key problems in Augmented Reality; viewpoint tracking and virtual object interaction.
