Vuforia Engine 10.12 is Available!

The Vuforia Engine team is happy to announce our newest version. Below are the key updates in this release. Please be sure to check out the release notes for the full list.

New Feature

Barcode Scanner: Engine now includes a Barcode Scanner API for reading barcodes and QR codes, including while tracking targets like Model and Area Targets. This feature is a Premium feature and will show a watermark for Basic license holders. Use the new API to read barcodes to identify products, launch experiences, or further enrich your apps.

Additional Updates

  • Model Target Mesh Observer: Now the mesh representation of a Model Target is exposed at runtime, enabling visual effects and other benefits while tracking Model Targets.
  • GPS Prior Tutorial for Area Targets: For large spaces GPS can be used to help localize with Area Targets, and now a detailed step-by-step guide with sample code is provided that shows how to do that.
  • Improved Model Target Tracking on iOS and Android: We improved LOW_FEATURE_OBJECT mode for even better detection and tracking of difficult objects. Additionally, the AI-assisted tracking optimizations are now available on all iOS and Android devices running ARKit or ARCore, plus Magic Leap 2 and HoloLens 2.
  • Account Usage Tab on Engine Developer Portal: The amount of target generations for Model and Area Targets is now easily viewable within the Engine Developer Portal along with other account information.
