    I'm curious if anyone has considered using Mars for robotic vision (building an internal map of floors/walls/objects)?

    I wonder if Unity would consider supporting PC cameras for this end?

    It could also be nice to test with a webcam in the editor to get a better feel (the simulator seems ok, but testing through a camera seems even better).

    Just trying Mars out to see if there is any use, but these seem like major use-cases or improvements from my perspective.

    Mars relies on the underlying platform (ARCore, ARKit etc) for scene data so to make this work with a PC webcam would require implementing plane detection etc for the webcam feed. The hooks are there in Mars to do this, but require implementing the required computer vision parts.
