Extended 3D tracking with ORB

I am developing a fairly simple mobile AR application, which uses a basic hamming code marker detection. Now I want to take that a step further, and create a way to continue 3D tracking of the scene based on the initial 3D position of the marker. I want to create a feature similar to the Extended tracking option in Vuforia SDK (but since I have to use open source options, Vuforia won't work here).

So what are the steps I have to take to achieve this? I understand that I need some kind of feature detection algorithm - for this I think ORB is a good option, right? After I've found the feature points in the scene, how can I detect if these points are on the same 3D planar surface as the marker?

OpenCV doesn't have this by default. However, I'm in the middle of building a module that does this, and it's about ready for testing by someone other than me.

Or you can use Theia, which is also open source.

Awesome, thank you very much! I'll have a look at your samples. :)
