Wireless 6-DOF Tracking Device

Home | Publications | Resume

We present a real-time hand-held 6-DOF tracking device (mouse) using inertial MEMS sensors.

This device uses accelerometers and gyrometers to estimate its 3-d location and 3-d orientation. This information is transmitted to the computer. This device can be used, for example, to conveniently navigate in a 3-d virtual world. In the image on the right, we use to control a tool on the screen.
