Robotics / Telerobotics / Mechatronics
The newest 10,000Hz VZ10K 3D motion capture trackers are built from the ground up for real-time Robotics and real-time feedback control applications. PTI has tapped into 15 years of experience in building motion capture systems for advanced Robotics and real-time applications such as the Robonaut program by NASA. The VZ10K motion capture tracker is a culmination of the 3D motion capture technology PTI has been perfecting over the past tracker generations.
Breakthroughs in Motion Capture
- 10,000Hz 3D motion capture
More than twice as fast as any other 3D motion capture system.
- < 0.3ms latency
Real-time motion capture is now reality.
- 0.015mm resolution (at 1.2m)
This is the smallest position change that the motion capture system can detect.
- Up to 0.10mm accuracy (RMS, 1D, nominal)
Highest available accuracy on the motion capture market.
Our systems are used for:
- Swarm Robotics
- Feedback Control
- Robotic Hand Grasping
- Robotic Arm Validation
- UAV’s and UGV's
- Assistive Devices
- Robotic-assisted gait
- Multi-Robot Systems
- Human-Robot Interaction
COST-EFFICIENT TO REDUCE RESEARCH FUNDING
At PTI, we believe a superior and futureproof equipment can save a person years of research time and effort.
This is why our VZ10K motion capture systems are cost-efficient, highly portable and can be used for many different research topics, hence can significantly reduce research funding application frequency and hardship.
3D MOTION CAPTURE VS. 2D MOTION CAPTURE
An inherently 3D active motion capture system brings many benefits compared to a passive motion capture system constructed from multiple 2D cameras:
INSTANT AUTOMATIC CALIBRATIONEven for a multi-tracker system. Move your tracker DURING motion capture without any need to stop recording!
NO MARKER SWAPPING/ identification errorEssential for reliable real-time feedback control. No marker or marker pattern registration required, ever.
HIGH PORTABILITYVery few parts to move and reinstall for a new project or new system layout.
EMBEDDED REAL-TIME FILTERSEasily cope with different motion capture environments where reflections (water, metallic parts) or outliers (stray lights) can happen.
If you do research in fast-paced Robotics and need reliable real-time motion capture, you owe it to yourself to check out the high-performance features of our VZ10K active 3D motion capture system.
