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.
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 ;)

I am an electrical engineering student working on a project in AR for a laboratory working on Robotics and Automations.
What I am actually trying to do is to recognize a 3d object (part of a car) and track it.
I would like to know if there is this possibility using your software and how can I do it.
I have to work with Unity so I have already downloaded the Unity extension of Wikitude.
