Advanced Model Targets support recognition and tracking of one or more objects from all sides, all contained in a single Advanced Model Target Database. Recognition ranges can be defined up to a full 360-degrees around every object, without requiring the user to align an outline of the model with the physical object to start tracking.
All that is required is training one or more Model Targets in the Model Target Generator. In contrast to Model Targets without training the MTG uploads your 3D-model to the Vuforia Cloud for the deep learning training process.
The Vuforia sample package presents the NASA Viking lander, which can be 3D printed and tested with the 360-degree detection range. The model and printing instructions can be found on the 3D Printing Instructions for the Viking Mars Lander page. It demonstrates the Advanced Model Targets Databases and is a resource to help you get started. The sample package is available on Vuforia’s website in the Downloads section under the Samples tab.
In addition, the Vuforia Engine samples for Unity contain an Advanced Model Target of a 1:18 toy model of the Polaris RZR XP 1000, which can be easily acquired for testing, e.g. on Amazon.
