Abstract
Not Available Spatially immersive displays such as the CAVET are increasingly gaining acceptance because they offer higher resolution and greater user comfort and realism than HMDs. A technology for accurate untethered tracking of several users within a large immersive display is needed to fully unlock their potential for interactive exploration. InterSense proposes to develop improved technology for tracking head and body position inside of immersive projection environments by extending our previously-demonstrated ConstellationT motion tracking system. ConstellationT uses innovative adaptive sensor fusion algorithms to optimally blend time-of-flight ultrasonic range measurements with angular rate and linear acceleration data from a proprietary micro-miniature inertial sensing device called the InertiaCubeT. The ConstellationT is a cost-effective, proven technology that delivers sub-centimeter accuracy over a scaleable tracking volume (up to the size of a whole building), with robustness superior to single-technology solutions. In the phase I research, we will analyze techniques for tracking multiple body parts of multiple users, and build a prototype system to demonstrate operation in a projective display environment. Our approach will provide precise, low-latency, 6-DOF tracking of multiple users in a spatially immersive display of any size with no sensitivity to metallic or electromagnetic interference and minimal user encumbrance or line-of-sight constraints.
