Instant Tracking makes it possible for AR applications to overlay interactive digital augmentations on physical surfaces, without the use of a marker.
Wikitude provides its own SLAM Instant Tracking technology which can be dynamically connected to ARKit and ARCore (Wikitude SMART).See all features

Wikitude Instant Tracking
Instant Tracking is the first feature using Wikitude’s Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology. It allows developers to easily map environments and display augmented reality content without the need for target images or objects (markers). Wikitude markerless tracking has a wider reach than ARKit and ARCore, covering more than 90% of iOS devices and at least 20 times more Android devices than ARCore.
SMART with ARKit and ARCore
Instant Tracking sessions can be saved in the form of Instant Targets. Once saved, the AR experiences can be persistently accessed by multiple users across devices and operating systems (iOS, Android, and UWP) at different points in time. This makes sharing AR experiences much easier.
This feature lets you understand the depth value of any given screen point (x,y). Knowing the 3D coordinates of the corresponding points in the scene that is being tracked is especially useful for placing augmentations at the correct depth in the scene.
