A precise optical tracker for the most demanding tracking environments. Designed for head and object tracking in simulator, medical and 3D visualization applications. laserBIRD's scanner continuously scans the work space. Its sensor instantly senses the laser beams. Signals are then directed back to the scanner's DSP electronics for processing and output of position and orientation data to a host computer.
Head/object tracking in simulators & virtual/augmented reality systems
Real-time navigation in image-guided medical procedures
Instrument tracking in surgical applications
Guidance & control of robotic devices
Bio-mechanical measurement and feedback
