I think its a known problem about artoolkit .. this link Robust Pose
estimation from planar
some of those..
The artoolkitplus has a robust pose estimate api which "reduces" this
problem. However, I did see this issue to a smaller extent even with rpp. I
am not sure if I was using it the wrong way though.
