Wireless Motion Capture

Motion capture is the process of recording movement of objects or persons. It is used in military, entertainment, sports, and medical applications, and for validation of computer vision and robotics. This workshop presents techniques for wireless motion capturing using inertial sensors. Inertial Motion Capture technology is based on miniature inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. The motion data of the inertial sensors (inertial guidance system) is often transmitted wirelessly to a computer, where the motion is recorded or viewed. Most inertial systems use accelerometers and gyroscopes to measure rotational rates. These rotations are translated to a skeleton in the software. Much like optical markers, the more gyros the more natural the data. No external cameras, emitters or markers are needed for relative motions, although they are required to give the absolute position of the user if desired.

Motion Capture Sytem (MCS) is based on great number of small inertial sensors. System enables monitoring of acceleration and trajectory of key body parts. In Human Error performance by Marija Scekic, entire system is modified and made into Wireless Motion Capture (WMCS) that is entirely integrated into black channels within a costume of a dancer.
