ART and Full Motion Simulator

Looking for a compact, easy to use and neat tracking device for your space-limited simulation application?

SMARTTRACK3/M is THE all-in-one tracking system optimized for such use cases! It works with passive markers (we can do active, too), so no wires to the tracked helmet are required any more. It can even work with flat markers (stickers) if required. With a proper marker placement, the possible turning angles and tracking distances are extremely large.  As a further advantage, SMARTTRACK3/M can track up to 10 objects simultaneously, e.g. two helmets in a side-by-side cockpit! The system has an integrated controller and is powered over the Ethernet.

Convincing advantages of SMARTTRACK3/M for your simulation application:

  • supports spherical, flat and active markers and is thus not technically limited like other tracking devices on the market.
  • supports clip-on targets for helmets without wires or batteries (passive)
  • comes in a compact housing with multiple solid mounting options
  • also works under moderate vibrations and shocks
  • achieves a low latency (like its sister model SMARTTRACK3)
  • is available in two different optics: super wide angle and normal angle (like ARTTRACK6/M)
  • allows tracking on very short distance (<15cm)
  • can track up to 10 objects simultaneously
  • provides:
    • a frame rate of up to 240Hz
    • a rotation angle of up to 360 ° (when using suitable targets)
  • can be connected to all DTRACK-supported software packages, including Unity, Unreal and VRPN

Targets

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…

Markers

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.…
