Definetely when needing an image target based AR experience, I'd go with Vuforia Engine, the implementation is pretty straightforward (at least when using UNITY SDK), it is well documented and there are plenty of examples to start with. I wouldn't recommend it yet for tracking objects or environments if it is for commercial purposes, because it tends to fail from time to time from my experience.

The augmentations and detection of images are pretty good. There are no unnecessary effects. Efficient setup and documentation are pretty good. And most importantly good support from services. We can even use this without deep knowledge about AR because SDK makes it simpler for us to use.

  • Performance when using unity (the device heats up).
  • Image marker works fine but surface detection tends to fail still.
  • Even though there's a free plan, there are many alternatives now where they cost less or they're even free.
