Title

Inertial Position and Orientation Tracking System

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

In this project a prototype design is implemented for an IPOTS (Inertial Position and Orientation Tracking System). The problem of tracking position and orientation of a filming device using GPS will be limited to its slow refresh rate, proximity resolution and the inability to be used indoors. The IPOTS will be used to track the position and orientation of a filming device while sampling at equal to or greater than the recording device's frame rate, as well as an increase in navigation space resolution, which is crucial for filming purposes that need high time resolution. The design acquires raw inertial voltage via accelerometers and rate gyroscopes and then stores the data on an on-board multimedia storage device with FAT16 file system which can be accessed through most operating systems. The files stored on the media card are then extracted with our conversion software that calculates position and orientation data that can be used by the use.
