SubjectOpitcal tracking; 6 degrees of freedom motion
AbstractAn in-house optical tracking system was designed using an off-the-shelf CCD camera video processor system and an IBM PC compatible computer. The system is capable of tracking multiple bodies at 50 Hz and producing six degree-of-freedom motion output of one body in real time. Six degree-of-freedom motion of the other bodies is calculated later. The performance of the hardware and software are reviewed through various experiments in this paper.
