Motion Capture System


1. Phasespace Impulse X2:

Our group has recently re-equipped with a new motion capture system (the new Phasespace Impulse X2 motion capture system with active LEDs) and a 3-wall immersive virtual reality set-up.

The Phasespace Impulse X2 system uses 8 cameras that are able to capture 3D motion using modulated LEDs. These cameras contain a pair of linear scanner arrays operating at high frequency each of which can capture the position of any number of bright spots of light as generated by the LEDs. The system offers a fast rate of capture (480Hz) and allows the individual markers to be identified by combining the information from several frames and hence identifying the marker from its unique modulation.

Our system is able to capture 3D motion data over time of a single character, maintaining the correct human proportions and the naturalness of the action, while having a realistic motion. The system also offers mobility enabling motion capture sessions to be performed at dance schools and studios.

2. Optitrack Motion Capture system:

Motion capture system from Optitrack (http://www.naturalpoint.com/optitrack/) with 12 cameras


Multipanel 3D Display

Assembled by members of the lab using three 3D enabled projector


Multi-touch Table


Left: the multi-touch table prototype. Right: unit stationed at the Leventis museum (http://www.leventismuseum.org.cy/).

Both where developed by members of the group


Virtual Tour System

Developed for the Leventis museum. Uses a touch screen to control the interactive demo displayed on the projector

Both the interactive demo and the tour system where developed in the lab
