IndoTraq – Major Update to Position Tracking Firmware

High Speed Network (Current Systems)

  • Supports up to 8 anchors.
    • The more anchors the better the precision in non-line of sight conditions.
  • Allows automatic anchor location configuration to work with either triangle or rectangle set-up.
    • Rectangle formation provides better coverage in a large space while improving performance and Z-Axis tracking

NEW:  Mesh Network

  • Accommodates up to 32 anchors and 128 tags initially.
  • Allows multiple IndoTraq systems to connect, resulting in a much larger coverage area.
  • Update rate dependent on number of anchors and tags used.

Tag Updates

  • Digital inputs and outputs have been added to the tags. This allows a tag to be placed inside the object (i.e. ball, bat, and gun) that is part of the VR experience.
  • Tags can now “see” other tags. This allows one tag to track position and, at the same time, transmit information about other tags such as a tracked item directly to your Head Mounted Device (HMD).
  • Tags can now output GPS coordinates, in addition to (X,Y,Z) coordinates. This will allow the IndoTraq system to interface with other devices that can accept GPS coordinates, including drones.

Support technology

  • Mobile phone app to determine optimum anchor placements by graphically showing wireless signal strength between the tags and anchors.
    • Currently available for Android OS.

Other

  • IndoTraq has designed their own autonomous drone to enable in house testing and development.
  • 2016 Winner TIA (Telecom Industry Association) “People’s Choice Award.”

Future Enhancements

  • 3D Measurement
