High-end optical tracking solutions support industrial product design and prototype development.
Virtual Reality (VR) is one technology supporting design and prototype phases creating a computer-generated world in which the user can perform tasks using real world movements and actions.
Application of VR in prototyping phase reduces development risks and therefore costs and increases the later product success on the market.
Accurate and reliable motion tracking technology of ART guarantees a realistic interaction with virtual content.
The benefits of large-screen immersive systems
Stereoscopic projectors have been used to display virtual reality applications onto large projection screens since the beginnings of virtual reality technology in the early 1990’s.
ART and Head Mounted Displays (HMDs)
It is essential that a fully immersive Virtual Reality experience should be both accurate and comfortable to use. When merging with real-world objects, VR representations have to precisely match reality.

The following ART products were used for the above solutions
Always the right position
VERPOSE® is a camera-based system for hand-held assembly tools (electrical screwdrivers, riveting tools, clinching pliers, filling devices and other special tools).
The camera is mounted on the tool and observes the assembly position.
Industry standard for immersive 3D for large tracking volumes, accurate and stable
ARTTRACK5 is the next generation of our ARTTRACK camera family, the standard for immersive 3D applications in industry and research.
ARTTRACK5’s enhanced features offer higher…
Best solution for medium-sized tracking volumes
TRACKPACK/E camera is our best solution for medium-sized tracking volumes with a respectable frustum volume of 60m³. It is compatible with ARTTRACK5 and ARTTRACK5/C, and users can add up to 8 cameras to one ART Controller…
For high precise point measurements
The ART Measurement Tool is a pointing device for measurement applications. In this specialized field it is very important to measure positions of points with a high degree of accuracy.
Digitizing of Movements
Motion Capture ("mocap") is the technique of digitizing the movement of people, animals or objects. In the case of the ART Motion Capture system, markers are attached to the subject’s limbs and can be worn over normal…
Motion capture assistance tool
ART-Human is a tool to assist motion-capture projects. The software uses the information of our highly accurate 6 degree-of-freedom (6DOF) optical targets to track a human subject. We use 17 ergonomically designed targets which can be worn directly on…
Many geometries, also customized
Targets consists of several markers (minimum 4), and will give the 6DOF (degrees of freedom). Here also, we distinguish between passive and active types. In addition to our standard targets we offer several construction sets for your own targets and…
Active and passive versions available
Active markers are infrared light emitting elements, mostly LEDs. All active markers provided by ART are just emitting radiation when the tracking cameras are sensitive, thus have to be synchronised with the cameras.…
