This article presents the concept of continued experiences for paused AR applications built with Vuforia Engine 9.0 and later. Continued AR experiences are applications which can resume the AR experience after pause or interruption. You are now able to provide a convincing and coherent story to your application where the AR content is sustained from where the users left off.
Continued AR experiences work on all fusion providers and device platforms by maintaining anchors and Vuforia targets between pauses and application interrupts. It is required to enable the Device Tracker if you wish to have a continued AR experience. Additionally, familiarize yourself with Vuforia’s Device Tracking API Results as these states are essential for developing and specifying continued AR sessions.
Requirements for experiences continuity to function optimally
- Stable tracking – feature rich area
- Prior mapping of the surroundings
- Stable lighting settings
