Vuforia’s recognition and tracking capabilities can be used on a variety of images and objects.
Model Targets are used for recognizing objects by their shape using existing 3D models.
Ground Plane enables you to place content on horizontal surfaces in your environment.
Vuforia Fusion is designed to provide the best possible AR experience on a wide range of devices. It senses the capabilities of the underlying device and fuses them with Vuforia features, allowing developers to rely on a single Vuforia API for an optimal AR experience.
Image Targets are flat images, such as print media and product packaging.
VuMarks are customized markers that can encode a range of data formats. They support both unique identification and tracking for AR applications.
Multi-Targets are created using more than one Image Target and can be arranged into regular geometric shapes (e.g. boxes) or in any arbitrary arrangement of planar surfaces.
Cylinder Targets are images wrapped onto objects that are approximately cylindrical in shape ( e.g. beverage bottles, coffee cups, soda cans ).
Vuforia can recognize and track a wider range of 3D objects as well. Object Recognition enables Object Targets to be created by scanning physical objects. It allows you to create apps that recognize and track intricate rigid objects.
The Cloud Recognition Service helps recognize a large set of images or if the database is frequently updated. The Vuforia Web Services API allows you to manage these large image databases in the cloud efficiently and enables you to automate your workflows by direct integration into your content management systems.
