Abstract—In the process of creating an Augmented Reality (AR) system, there are various Augmented Reality Software Development Kits (AR SDK) available for development. Each AR SDK has different features. Therefore, a study has to be performed about which AR SDK is appropriate for implementation. This paper focuses on an AR system for Forensic Medicine education in Thailand, where drowning is one of the main causes of death. With the aim of a comparative study and selection, the AR SDK type suitable for use in creating an AR system for teaching Forensic Medicine is selected. The traditional teaching and learning method was studied. There were general requirements of SDKs which are recognition of objects in both 2D and 3D, recognition stability of immovable and movable markers, and supporting platforms both Android and iOS. It was found that Vuforia is an AR SDK suitable for use in Forensic Medicine education. Studying and comparing the various Vuforia feature types resulted in the image target and model target as appropriate methods for Forensic Medicine education in the case of investigating drowning.

Index Terms—AR technology, SDK, drowning, forensic study, criminal procedural law, crime.
