Title: Wireless realtime motion tracking system using localised orientation estimation
Authors: Young, Alexander D.
Supervisor(s): Arvind, D K
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: The University of Edinburgh
Abstract: A realtime wireless motion tracking system is developed. The system is capable of tracking the orientations of multiple wireless sensors, using a semi-distributed implementation to reduce network bandwidth and latency, to produce real-time animation of rigid body models, such as the human skeleton. The system has been demonstrated to be capable of full-body posture tracking of a human subject using fifteen devices communicating with a basestation over a single, low bandwidth, radio channel. The thesis covers the theory, design, and implementation of the tracking platform, the evaluation of the platform’s performance, and presents a summary of possible future applications.
