augmented reality takes a giant step towards tracking the world. We
are excited to reveal Wikitude SDK 7, the “all-in-one
AR tool-kit” powered
with object tracking, instant tracking (SLAM), multiple targets
recognition, extended recognition range, and more. SDK 7 includes
marker, markerless and location-based augmented reality features in
one kit for developers.
In a nutshell, SDK 7 includes:
So, let's have a closer look at two of the new features we introduced with SDK 7.
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.
Image target recognition
SDK 7 introduces ‘Multiple Image Target’ tracking to Wikitude’s advanced image recognition technology. This feature enables recognition of several images simultaneously. Once the images are recognized, developers will be able to layer 3D models, buttons, videos, images and more on each target. Additionally, augmentations will be able to interact with each other based on the targets’ positions. Multiple image target recognition can be used to bring interactivity to board and card games, empower consumers with information about different products in retail stores, assist workers with product organization on supermarket shelves and more.
