AmfiTrack™

- the affordable 3D tracking system

 

 

AmfiTrack is an embedded stand-alone, high precision and low cost electromagnetic tracking system. The AmfiTrack system positions an object in 3D, outputting the absolute position (XYZ) and rotation (pitch/yaw/roll) of the system components in respect to each other, making it a so-called true six degrees of freedom (6DOF) electromagnetic tracking system.

 

 

The AmfiTrack system is based on electromagnetic field (EMF) tracking, using an EMF transmitter and one or more EMF receivers. The system receivers picks up the EMF level sent out by the transmitter, which is then processed by the unique AmfiTrack hardware. The AmfiTrack state-of-the-art algorithms then calculates a true, high precision absolute position and orientation of the transmitter and receivers, with respect to each other.
