IR tracker

IR tracker


This week i started my thesis on energy readings in augmented reality. While doing research about augmented reality i came upon Wikitude.

I have tested some basic things this yesterday like setting up the simpleIRExample on my Galaxy s3 and testing the hello world tutorial, with ARchitect viewer.

Today i wanted to test out the simple IR recognition tracker, making a database( with a 3 star rated object in it(micro).

This is the code i used, suggested in the tutorial with some minor changes.

<!-- Include the ARchitect library -->

<script src="architect://architect.js"></script>

<!-- Include the ARchitect Desktop Engine for testing on a desktop browser-->

<script type="text/javascript" src="../ade.js"></script>


// create tracker

var tracker = new AR.Tracker(;

var image = new AR.ImageResource(;

var overlay = new AR.ImageDrawable(image, 1.0);

var trackable2DObject = new AR.Trackable2DObject(tracker, "micro",{ drawables: { cam: overlay }});







After many tests i never got the tracker to pick up anything. 

Am i missing something that is needed or does the exampleIRapp not work with this code?


Any help would be appreciated.

Greetings Tim

I tested the code with ARchitect viewer but i did not react in any way.

I replaced the code inside the SimpleIRExample with my own code and it worked fine.
