Attach AR content to objects & scenes
Wikitude Object & Scene Tracking
Object Tracking enables real-time 360° augmented reality experiences around physical objects.
Scene Tracking makes it possible to recognize, track and augment feature-rich rooms, scenes, and larger objects.
Object and Scene Tracking is the ideal AR feature for augmenting products, industrial machinery, historical monuments, art pieces, building façades, and more.
Use 3D models (like CAD models or runtime assets) to enable better recognition and tracking, and work with a greater range of low-textured objects. Apply for beta testing below.

3D Model Object Tracking (Beta)
Create high-performing Unity object tracking AR experiences for iOS and Android using 3D models. Work with reflective and feature-poor objects such as vehicles, large-scale industrial machines, home appliances, toys and more.

Object Tracking introduces a new type of marker-based AR experience. The technology is very similar to Image Tracking, but instead of recognizing images and planar surfaces, this feature works with three-dimensional structures and objects. Detection is based on a pre-recorded map of the object. The workflow is simple: take pictures of an object, upload them to Wikitude Studio and embed into your app – or apply for beta testing above to create 3D-Model-based object tracking AR experiences.
This feature is a natural step forward in the evolution of the Object tracking technology, supporting recognition & tracking not only of small objects but also of rooms, buildings, landscapes, industrial sites, complex machinery, and large-scale objects. Moreover, it localizes the user in a more precise manner than GPS does. Think gaming, historical monuments, feature-rich, industrial maintenance, or other cases that call for more comprehensive recognition.
Object & Scene Tracking Augmented Reality Use Cases
Maintenance and Repair
Industries are using AR to optimize their business in design, production, distribution, maintenance and remote assistance. Technicians can scan machines to check for faulty settings and remote experts can connect with on-site technicians who receive real-time audio, messaging as well as AR instructions. AR enhanced content is also being used as an alternative to the traditional owner’s manuals and setup guides.
Artists are creating digital art pieces layered over public places that are unveiled through augmented reality. Museum items can be enhanced with AR explanations, videos or other meaningful content. Historical statues and sites can be overlaid with a digital reconstruction of their original state, allowing visitors to visualize them as in their time of glory. This creates vast possibilities to engage visitors in interactive ways.
