The optical tracker Personal Space Tracker (PST) Base tracks complex shaped objects, convex or concave.
WHAT THE MANUFACTURER SAYS:
There is no requirement for all markers to be visible to the tracking system. Occlusion of a significant number of markers is handled without loss of tracking. In most cases objects have around 30 markers, typically only 8 are simultaneously visible to the tracking system. Even with such a small subset of visible markers the tracking system can calculate a 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF) position and orientation of the object.
Teaching the optical tracker PST Base about new objects is easy. A simple training procedure allows the user to simply show a new object to the tracking system and within seconds these objects can be used for full 6DOF tracking.
The optical tracker PST Base comes with an easy to use C SDK with bindings for C# and Python.
Every PST Base is a fully independent tracking unit. Ready to go from the moment it comes out of the box. No calibration and no registration of cameras.
