Detailed Description

Core of the ARToolKit Library. This file provides image analysis and marker detection routines. Differents routines give access to camera and marker configurations. Other routines manipulate marker info structures for deliver 3D transformation of markers (more precisely the position of the camera in function of the marker coordinate system).

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT
 

ARToolKit pixel-format specifiers.

ARToolKit functions can accept pixel data in a variety of formats. This enumerations provides a set of constants you can use to request data in a particular pixel format from an ARToolKit function that returns data to you, or to specify that data you are providing to an ARToolKit function is in a particular pixel format.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_RGB Each pixel is represented by 24 bits. Eight bits per each Red, Green, and Blue component. This is the native 24 bit format for the Mac platform.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_BGR Each pixel is represented by 24 bits. Eight bits per each Blue, Red, and Green component. This is the native 24 bit format for the Win32 platform.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_RGBA Each pixel is represented by 32 bits. Eight bits per each Red, Green, Blue, and Alpha component.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_BGRA Each pixel is represented by 32 bits. Eight bits per each Blue, Green, Red, and Alpha component. This is the native 32 bit format for the Win32 platform.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_ABGR Each pixel is represented by 32 bits. Eight bits per each Alpha, Blue, Green, and Red component. This is the native 32 bit format for the SGI platform.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_ARGB Each pixel is represented by 32 bits. Eight bits per each Alpha, Red, Green, and Blue component. This is the native 32 bit format for the Mac platform.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_MONO Each pixel is represented by 8 bits of luminance information.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_2vuy 8-bit 4:2:2 Component Y'CbCr format. Each 16 bit pixel is represented by an unsigned eight bit luminance component and two unsigned eight bit chroma components. Each pair of pixels shares a common set of chroma values. The components are ordered in memory; Cb, Y0, Cr, Y1. The luminance components have a range of [16, 235], while the chroma value has a range of [16, 240]. This is consistent with the CCIR601 spec. This format is fairly prevalent on both Mac and Win32 platforms. '2vuy' is the Apple QuickTime four-character code for this pixel format. The equivalent Microsoft fourCC is 'UYVY'.

AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_yuvs 8-bit 4:2:2 Component Y'CbCr format. Identical to the AR_PIXEL_FORMAT_2vuy except each 16 bit word has been byte swapped. This results in a component ordering of; Y0, Cb, Y1, Cr. This is most prevalent yuv 4:2:2 format on both Mac and Win32 platforms. 'yuvs' is the Apple QuickTime four-character code for this pixel format. The equivalent Microsoft fourCC is 'YUY2'.

int arDetectMarker ARUint8 *  dataPtr,
int  thresh,
ARMarkerInfo **  marker_info,
int *  marker_num
 

main function to detect the square markers in the video input frame.

This function proceeds to thresholding, labeling, contour extraction and line corner estimation (and maintains an history). It's one of the main function of the detection routine with arGetTransMat.

Parameters:
dataPtr a pointer to the color image which is to be searched for square markers. The pixel format depend of your architecture. Generally ABGR, but the images are treated as a gray scale, so the order of BGR components does not matter. However the ordering of the alpha comp, A, is important.
thresh specifies the threshold value (between 0-255) to be used to convert the input image into a binary image.
marker_info a pointer to an array of ARMarkerInfo structures returned which contain all the information about the detected squares in the image
marker_num the number of detected markers in the image.
Returns:
0 when the function completes normally, -1 otherwise

double arGetTransMat ARMarkerInfo marker_info,

calculate the transformation between a detected marker and the real camera, i.e. the position and orientation of the camera relative to the tracking mark.

Parameters:
marker_info the structure containing the parameters for the marker for which the camera position and orientation is to be found relative to. This structure is found using arDetectMarker.
center the physical center of the marker. arGetTransMat assumes that the marker is in x-y plane, and z axis is pointing downwards from marker plane. So vertex positions can be represented in 2D coordinates by ignoring the z axis information. The marker vertices are specified in order of clockwise.
width the size of the marker (in mm).
conv the transformation matrix from the marker coordinates to camera coordinate frame, that is the relative position of real camera to the real marker
Returns:
always 0.

calculate the transformation between a detected marker and the real camera, i.e. the position and orientation of the camera relative to the tracking mark. Since this routine operate on previous values, the result are more stable (less jittering).

Parameters:
marker_info the structure containing the parameters for the marker for which the camera position and orientation is to be found relative to. This structure is found using arDetectMarker.
prev_conv the previous transformation matrix obtain.
center the physical center of the marker. arGetTransMat assumes that the marker is in x-y plane, and z axis is pointing downwards from marker plane. So vertex positions can be represented in 2D coordinates by ignoring the z axis information. The marker vertices are specified in order of clockwise.
width the size of the marker (in mm).
conv the transformation matrix from the marker coordinates to camera coordinate frame, that is the relative position of real camera to the real marker
Returns:
always 0.

ARUint32 arGetVersion char **  versionStringRef  ) 
 

Get the ARToolKit version information in numberic and string format.

As of version 2.72, ARToolKit now allows querying of the version number of the toolkit available at runtime. It is highly recommended that any calling program that depends on features in a certain ARToolKit version, check at runtime that it is linked to a version of ARToolKit that can supply those features. It is NOT sufficient to check the ARToolKit SDK header versions, since with ARToolKit implemented in dynamically-loaded libraries, there is no guarantee that the version of ARToolKit installed on the machine at run-time will as recent as the version of the ARToolKit SDK which the host program was compiled against. The version information is reported in binary-coded decimal format, and optionally in an ASCII string. See the config.h header for more discussion of the definition of major, minor, tiny and build version numbers.

Parameters:
versionStringRef If non-NULL, the location pointed to will be filled with a pointer to a string containing the version information. Fields in the version string are separated by spaces. As of version 2.72.0, there is only one field implemented, and this field contains the major, minor and tiny version numbers in dotted-decimal format. The string is guaranteed to contain at least this field in all future versions of the toolkit. Later versions of the toolkit may add other fields to this string to report other types of version information. The storage for the string is malloc'ed inside the function. The caller is responsible for free'ing the string.
Returns:
Returns the full version number of the ARToolKit in binary coded decimal (BCD) format. BCD format allows simple tests of version number in the caller e.g. if ((arGetVersion(NULL) >> 16) > 0x0272) printf("This release is later than 2.72\n"); The major version number is encoded in the most-significant byte (bits 31-24), the minor version number in the second-most-significant byte (bits 23-16), the tiny version number in the third-most-significant byte (bits 15-8), and the build version number in the least-significant byte (bits 7-0).

int arInitCparam ARParam param  ) 
 

initialize camera parameters.

In the video-see through AR applications, the default camera parameters are sufficient, no camera calibration is needed.

Parameters:
param the camera parameter structure
Returns:
always 0

Parameters:

area On return, if label_num > 0, points to an array of ints, one for each detected component.
pos On return, if label_num > 0, points to an array of doubles, one for each detected component.
clip On return, if label_num > 0, points to an array of ints, one for each detected component.
