I/ITSEC 2016: Thales’ InterSense Motion Trackers

Ideal for augmented and virtual reality applications, simulation and training, robotic navigation and more

I/ITSEC 2016 sees Thales’ InterSense Motion Trackers in action. The InterSense line of products include ultra-miniature, low-power sensors and flexible software and NavChip, one of the world’s smallest IMUs, which are used worldwide to deploy high performance tracking, navigation, visualisation and stabilisation applications that save lives, improve productivity and conserve resources.

Along with Thales’ IS-900 Ultrasonic-Inertial tracker, the IS-1200+ Optical-Inertial Tracker, used in mission critical applications, and NavChip, the company is excited to announce the IS-1500, its advanced wide-area Natural Feature Tracking solution.

The IS-1200+ HObiT (Hybrid Optical-Intertial Tracking System) is the company’s latest and most advanced optical and inertial based 6-DOF tracking system. The system provides precise 6-DOF tracking data utilising a fusion of inertial-optical technology.

The IS-1200+ HObIT low-power, small-sized package can be head-worn with minimal impact or integrated into any object for virtually unlimited tracking. The power and interface for the IS-1200+ HObIT comes from a USB port for flexibility and ease of integration into your tracking application.

The IS-1200+ HObIT is delivered fully factory calibrated and simple-to-use. Fiducial constellation can be installed and mapped to ~50 microns accuracy in just a few minutes using new VisualMapper software provided with the IS-1200+ HObIT. Once installed, the sensor is always ready without need for additional calibration. For use on vehicles, an auto-harmonization algorithm allows the system to self-align the fiducial constellation with the vehicle INS or attitude reference.
