This workshop will introduce FIRST Tech Challenge teams to using Vuforia in Java programming. The workshop will be held this Friday from 4:30 to 6pm at the University of Victoria in the Engineering Law Wing (ELW) B215.

Vuforia is an augmented reality software development kit (SDK) for mobile devices that enables the creation of augmented reality applications. It uses computer vision technology to recognize and track planar images and 3D objects in real time.  A library of Vuforia classes is included in the FTC SDK that supports using the RC phone camera to locate objects in the camera field of view and return actionable information to your program.

Vuforia can be used in Blocks, OnBot Java or Android Studio.  For this workshop, we’ll show teams how to use Vuforia in OnBot Java.
