ALVAR Tracking SDK

ALVAR is "a library for virtual and augmented reality." The ALVAR SDK allows you to create AR applications with the most accurate, efficient and robust implementation for marker-, 2D image-, and 3D point cloud-based tracking. ALVAR provides a low-level C++ API to its tracking algorithms and includes several tools that assist in the creation of AR applications. Its low-level interface makes it possible to develop custom solutions that can be integrated with existing products and services.
