Abstract
Not Available Visidyne, Inc. proposes to design and demonstrate the feasibility of an optical and intertial helmet-tracking system. This hybrid system will integrate two patented technologies, the commercially available InterSense IntertiaCube inertial sensor and Visidyne's optical range sensor OpticalGPS to provide six-degree-of-freedom head tracking within a moving vehicle. These mature technologies will be merged in an innovative hybrid system to yield a helmet-tracking system with capabilities far beyond any commercially available tracking system. BENEFITS: The technology we propose will provide precise six-degree-of-freedom helmet tracking using technologies that are mature and commercially viable. The technology has a high degree of commonality and may also be applied to telesurgery, telepresence, augmented and virtual reality, and indoor navigation.
