Great news for you as today we launched SDK 7, which includes your feature request, “Object Recognition”. In a nutshell, SDK 7 introduces:
SDK 7 significantly expands Wikitude’s SLAM technology by adding object recognition and tracking
capabilities to its feature set. These features enable brands and
enterprises to build augmented reality experiences using a variety of
real-world objects, such as toys, sculptures, architectural models,
product packaging, industrial machines and more.
The workflow is simple: record a video of your object, upload it to the Wikitude Studio Manager and create your AR experience as desired. Object recognition technology creates an additional touch point to interact with users, allowing real time and 360 degrees augmented reality experiences around real world objects.
Check out this blog for a developer insight and this tutorial to see how you can create your first 'Object Target Collection'. You can download the new SDK 7 directly from our Download page. Enjoy our new cool features ;)
You gave me a very good news!
Just a last question, will you add 3D Tracking also in the js framework? (I imagine something like ObjectTracker and ObjectTrackable classes).
Is there a way to start Instant Tracking when a 3D model is recognized? (I think no, it seems to be a nonsense)
If not, will you support 3D Tracking in a stable release of your framework (maybe also in the JS framework)? I'm asking this because we really need a good replacement for Metaio, and your 3D Tracking seems to be a feasible solution for our needs.
Thanks for your rapid answer. My problem is that I need the user is in an exact place looking towards an exact point (i.e. a place in the real world with some characteristics previously 3d-tracked). I really appreciate Instant Tracking, but it seems not to be suitable for my use case.
