The SMARTTRACK is the plug & play tracking solution for small volumes.

Two tracking cameras and the controller are fully integrated in one housing. When delivered, the SMARTTRACK is pre-calibrated and may be used immediately. This and its compact size make the SMARTTRACK the ideal mobile, out-of-the-box tracking system.

Using the SMARTTRACK is easy as 1 – 2 – 3:

  • turn it on
  • calibrate the bodies to be used and adjust the SMARTTRACK’s coordinate system to the coordinate system of the application (if necessary)
  • start tracking

Typical applications

Typical applications are for example:

  • Engineering or design review at a workbench
  • Staff training in front of stereo TVs or with head-mounted displays

It is ideal for head tracking or for using an interaction device. In order to work in active stereo applications with the SMARTTRACK it is possible to establish an external synchronisation.

New in July 2019: SMARTTRACK3!

With these new key enhanced features:

  • Enhanced performance:
    • Frame rate up to 240Hz  (up to 150 Hz on full sensor)
    • Latency <10ms
  • Single-cable: Power over Ethernet
  • Passive cooling (fanless design)
  • More robust against vibrations and shocks
  • Even wider field of view
  • Improved mounting options


Extended areas of application:

Higher performance and robustness of the new SMARTTRACK3 allows new, more demanding applications, such as simulators or use in moving vehicles for applications such as validation of driver observation systems.
