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 PSTracking 4.0
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 PST Cortex
(power booster unit) is recommended for a multi PST setup or networked access.
Client operating system
Windows (Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10), 32 and 64 bit and Linux.
Via the PST Cortex also to other operating systems.
VRPN, trackd3, Dtrack emulation, data export to .CSV and the tracker comes with an easy to use SDK with bindings for C# and Python
USB 2.0 - However, PST Base results can also be shared fully transparently over Ethernet. Install the PSTracking 4.0 software on a second computer and connect.
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.
