Comparative Analysis Of Optitrack Motion Capture Systems
MetadataShow full item record
A comparative analysis of four different OptiTrack motion capture systems is provided in this paper. Tracking accuracy, workspace volume, marker size and camera range are the main criteria used for comparison. The tracking accuracy is tested using Quanser’s linear motion platform by comparing the measured position of the cart with the position obtained using the encoder. The workspace volume limits are obtained by flying a LiteHawk Neon drone in circles of increasing radius at different heights until tracking fails. The relationship between marker size and camera range is obtained through theoretical calculations. Experimental as well as theoretical results are presented, illustrating the performance of these four systems. These will serve as a baseline to select the right motion capture system for any particular application.
