A set of plugins for Unity 3D that allow users to easily develop and deploy Augmented Reality applications
The Unity AR Toolkit (UART) is a set of plugins for the Unity Game Engine that allow users to easily develop and deploy Augmented Reality (AR) applications. The toolkit consists of three plugins with limited interdependence; VideoWrapper, TrackerWrapper and VRPNWrapper. These plugins facilitate video see-through tracking using either marker-based computer vision or external hardware such as GPS and orientation sensors. The VideoWrapper plugin provides a camera source selection widget along with C# scripts for grabbing camera frames and applying those textures to elements in Unity. The TrackerWrapper plugin provides several C# scripts for attaching marker-based tracking elements directly to elements in Unity. The VRPNWrapper plugin provides C# scripts that allow for the instantiation of both server and client VRPN trackers, analogs and buttons.
