Use a smartphone for true motion capture system
Motion capture is a growing and versatile tool. From 3D animation to physical therapy, the data from motion capture is gaining wider and wider usage. Unfortunately, motion capture requires multiple high-speed cameras and a variety of active or passive reflectors. Expensive and complicated equipment limits wider use.
Mobile motion capture technologies exist but lack versatility. Current systems only record video, which must be processed at a later date. Even then, the information from the motion capture systems is not always at the same level of quality, which limits the utility of the motion capture data.
Doctors Ka-Chun Siu and JC Chien invented new algorithm that allows for true mobile motion capture using a smartphone. Unlike other mobile motion capture systems, their invention makes it possible for real time motion capture, without expensive equipment—just a camera and some disposable markers. In laboratory tests, the mobile motion capture system captured motion just as precisely as a state of the art motion capture laboratory system.
