Title

The 3D Motion Capture System

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

In today’s entertainment driven world, the search for more accurate and realistic computer generated animation is ever so increasing. This project is a portable position-sensing system which will record the position and orientation of an object as the object moves. The data collected by this design will be stored onto a memory card and will be downloaded to a computer for analysis of the device's motion. This will provide the capability of having a more life-like movement in animation. Our solution to this problem will be the combination of sensors and a microcontroller to measure and calculate the position and orientation of the object that or device could be attached to. To solve the data memory storage dilemma, MMC memory storage will be integrated into our device along with using a 9V battery to make this system portable. At the same time, it will be made as small as possible to be more applicable in diverse application. Other applications this device can be used for could be for measuring joint movements in physical therapy or capturing a football being thrown to detect if the football is being thrown correctly.
