Abstract
Optical motion tracking systems are widely employed in virtual- and mixed reality applications enabling users to directly interact with 3D space. Important efforts have been made to make such technologies available to a larger group of users by significantly reducing their deployment costs. In this poster we introduce the result of a German-Brazilian cooperation: The first commercial low-cost marker-based optical tracking system developed in South-America. Despite using cheaper technologies and being low-cost which usually imply worse performance and accuracy, we developed a system with sufficient accuracy for professional use.
