    Hi!

    For starters, definitely one of the above 3 is recommended.
    Basically the difference between those is that ARKit is strictly for iOS, and ARCore is strictly for Android development, while AR Foundation is a multiplatform solution, where you can build your project both for Android and iOS.
    So it really depends on exactly which platform you are targeting, and how much do you want your project to be able to build for both platforms. If you only planning to develop for one platform, then you don't really need AR Foundation.
    Of yourse, every mentioned library has plane detection capabilities built in.

    As vertromisu said it depends on what platform you're developing for but plane detection is available in most, if not all, AR related SDKs.
