I am currently using the Wikitude SDK version 4.1.1 for developing an AR application. As per my understanding, Wikitude currently supports 2D Image markerless tracking. I want to know whether the upcoming version 5.0 of the Wikitude SDK is going to include support for markerless 3D object recognition?
If any one has tried to implement this feature, can you please suggest your approach.
Great news for you as today we launched SDK 7, which includes your feature request, “Object Recognition”. In a nutshell, SDK 7 introduces:
Multiple Image Target Recognition
Hit-testing API for SLAM
Instant tracking improvements
Extended recognition range
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.
