AR ANE is a native extension that provides augmented reality capabilities to applications on Android and iOS. It allows the application to open the device camera and detect targets using native code to handle all the processing. The extension will dispatch what it has found, so the developer is able to react to that information in the intended way.
Currently the extension is able to detect a planar region using the camera. The information related to that planar region, such as angulation and position, can be used to play a video within that identified area, for instance.
