Virtual reality techniques are increasingly becoming indispensable in many areas. This book looks at how to generate advanced virtual reality worlds. It covers principles, techniques, devices and mathematical foundations, beginning with basic definitions, and then moving on to the latest results from current research and exploring the social implications of these. Very practical in its approach, the book is fully illustrated in colour and contains numerous examples, exercises and case studies. This textbook will allow students and practitioners alike to gain a practical understanding of virtual reality concepts, devices and possible applications.FASTRAKTM, an award-winning system is a highly accurate, low-latency 3D motion tracking and digitizing system. ... The most common way to calculate the rest of the necessary information, is to use inverse kinematics (see Section 3.5). The wiring from the sensors tends to preclude extreme performance movements, but, as already seen, there are wireless ... 3.3.3 Motion Capture Advantages and Disadvantages The motion capture approach offers the following advantages: ac It worksanbsp;...
