Using instant tracking with external camera

We have been using Wikitude's instant tracking in our product for a long time. We have customers that are wanting to use it on laptops that do not have a built-in accelerometer and compass. Is it possible to use this with an external add-on camera that has an accelerometer and compass? Will Wikitude recognize these in an external camera device?

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, it is not possible to use an external add-on camera with an accelerometer and a compass because the Wikitude SDK will not be able to recognise it out of the box. A possible workaround might be to use the Plugins API and in particular the class "DeviceIMUInputPluginModule" which allows for sensor data to be input into the Wikitude SDK. You can find more details here.
