Android Object Recognition


I need to develop an Android App that have saved some images about statues. The goal of app, is to do a photo to an object and understand if the object is the same among those in the photos saved in the phone.

Can I use some Wikitude library and Is there any tutorial about this work?

Thank You Very Much

Best Regard

Hello Christian,

Object Recognition is something that we currently do not support. However, we had a 3D tracking beta feature that we were working on and the Wikitude technical team is now working on the final version of this feature. We will inform you as soon as we have any updates via email. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter and blog to have the latest news about Wikitude.

Hello Christian,

Great news for you as today we launched SDK 7, which includes your feature request, “Object Recognition”. In a nutshell, SDK 7 introduces:
  • Object Recognition
  • 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 ;)
