Position: < 0.5 mm RMSE; Orientation: < 1 deg RMSE 2
15-25 ms (depending on the shutter time and the filter settings)
Up to 200 Hz
Minimal tracking distance
Tracking in small and compact spaces (e.g. simulators, desktop)
One click process – dedicated tool included
Units needed for 6 DoF tracking
One; each PST base is a full 6DoF motion tracker
Expandable tracking area
Expandable, multiple trackers can be connected to expand the tracking area
Easy routine in seconds
Normal indoor lighting conditions
Integrated IR LED illumination (wavelength 850nm).
Flash illumination fully adjustable in PST Software Suite 5.0
15 - 35 deg. C
Number of targets
At least 15 independent 6DoF bodies. For instance: simultaneous head and object tracking
Passive (retro-reflective flat and spherical) - Active (LED)
Simple procedure: mark, train and use new device in seconds
An additional processing unit is in most cases not needed. A power booster unit is recommended for a multi PST setup or networked access.

Windows (Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10), 32 and 64 bit. The HD versions are also available for Linux (32/64 bit)
The tracker comes with an easy to use native C/C++ SDK and bindings for C# and Python. Interfacing is also supported via VRPN, trackd2, Dtrack emulation, data export to .CSV
Requires two USB 3 ports each with full bandwidth and capable of providing
2.7 Watts min. and 5 Watts max.
Positional coordinates(x, y, z), orientation angles, Euclidean transformation matrix.
Hardware trigger in and out
31 x 6 x 14 cm (W x H x D) The same as the standard Base
1/4”-20 UNC tripod mounting point
Output 9V, 40W. Input 100-240V, 50-60Hz
Max. 12 W
The field of view or measurement volume is the area in which markers can be tracked. The PST Base HD can work with three different lense sizes: 3.5mm, 4.5mm and 8.5mm. The decision dependes on the specific requirements of the use case. The image below shows the field of view of the PST Base HD with each option.
