Compass inaccuracies from metal object, can this be mitigated?


Hi,

As the Wikitude SDK is using the values that are returned from the system - unfortunately, if we receive in-accurate values, there is nothing we can do on our end to improve the accuracy.

Greetings

Nicola

We have a project using Wikitude (via Titanium) where we're showing POIs from the viewing platform of a large building.

The position of the POIs work well at first, but as the user spends time in the room, they drift from their correct position, sometimes by up to 45 degrees.

Experimenting with the iOS built in compass, it looks like the steel content of the building itself is causing headings to be innacurate. Is there any means to mitigate this by using any technique available to us through the SDK?

best regards

Peter
