Inertial sensor and camera enable easy object trackingInertial Aerosystems is introducing the innovative IS1200 TrackerVis that combines a six-degrees-of-freedom inertial sensor with an 85-degree field-of-view camera lens. This device monitors a user-mapped fiducial constellation (reference points) arranged in single rooms, multiple rooms or building-wide.

+++ STOP PRESS 2 November 2011 - This product is no longer available from ETLG Inertial Aerosystems, but contact the company for information about its comprehensive range of sensors. +++

Powerful fusion software, combined with DSP technology, can give a positional accuracy of 2-5mm under normal conditions. Drift correction and tolerance of low light levels result in reliable and consistent performance.

The system can be powered from the USB port of a PC; a realtime display of the position of the TrackerVis relative to the local fiducial matrix can be seen on the PC screen. The system is easily implemented using the user-friendly software that includes the generation of the required number of unique fiducials.

It can be used for tracking moving objects or people in factory automation, construction verification, CAD, oil and gas infrastructure, military and commercial simulation or aerospace applications.
