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