I'm working on a vuforia project and would like to be aware when vuforia can no longer detect the object in unity. Is there an easy way to write a script that is executed opon loosing track of an object for a given time?

You have by default the "DefaultTrackableEventHandler" attached to your Target. This script has a function called "OnTrackingLost()" which is doing exactly what you want to do. Maybe this functionality wasn't available as you asked this question.

That's correct, one way to do that is to have a script like the below attached to each Image Tracker object

using UnityEngine;
using Vuforia;
//Attach to the image tracker
public class ChildObjectsActivator : MonoBehaviour, ITrackableEventHandler
{
    private TrackableBehaviour trackableBehaviour;
    void Start()
    {
        trackableBehaviour = GetComponent<TrackableBehaviour>();
        if (trackableBehaviour)
            trackableBehaviour.RegisterTrackableEventHandler(this);
    }

    public void OnTrackableStateChanged(
      TrackableBehaviour.Status previousStatus,
      TrackableBehaviour.Status newStatus)
    {
        if (newStatus == TrackableBehaviour.Status.DETECTED ||
            newStatus == TrackableBehaviour.Status.TRACKED ||
            newStatus == TrackableBehaviour.Status.EXTENDED_TRACKED)
            OnTrackingFound();
        else
            onTrackingLost();
    }
    private void OnTrackingFound()
    {
        if (transform.childCount > 0)
            SetChildrenActive(true);
    }
    private void onTrackingLost()
    {
        if (transform.childCount > 0)
            SetChildrenActive(false);
    }
    private void SetChildrenActive(bool activeState)
    {
        for (int i = 0; i <= transform.childCount; i++)
            transform.GetChild(i++).gameObject.SetActive(activeState);
    }
}
