Exploring the Performance of Graphically Designed AR Markers

The design of graphical augmented reality (AR) markers requires compromise between the aesthetic appearance and tracking reliability. To investigate the topic, we created a virtual reality (VR) pipeline to evaluate marker performance, and validated it against real-world performance for a set of graphical AR markers. We report that, with the well known Vuforia framework and typical smartphone hardware, well designed 20 × 20 cm markers can be tracked at distances of up to 68 cm. We note that the number of feature points is particularly important to a marker’s angular performance.
