The power of the Plugins API
The Wikitude SDK Plugins API is the way to use augmented reality from Wikitude in combination with other image based libraries.Benefit from first class computer vision and AR technology plus the flexibility to extend your project your way. Shared camera access means that developers can work with the same camera image as Wikitude’s computer vision engine and run their own algorithms for their specific use-case.
Example: Wikitude’s AR combined with OCR
To illustrate the power of the Wikitude SDK Plugins API, the below video shows how Wikitude’s technology can identify the electricity meter on the wall and guide the worker to towards itWhile staying in the same camera view, ANYLINE’s mobile OCR technology takes over to execute the actual number reading from the unit. Instead of switching between two separate camera views for the AR from Wikitude and OCR from ANYLINE, it is now possible to run the two technologies in parallel ensuring the best possible experience for the end user.
