A new project came into my mind.
I would like to accurately track an object in 3D space and transfer
this data to a software on the PC. In practice I would like to build
a virtual camera rig and drive a camera from a 3D software package
on my desktop with this information.
1. What kind of sensors are out there to accomplish detection of position and orientation
2. What kind of accuracy is to expect using various techniques/sensors
on a hobbylevel?
3. Is it actually possible on a hobby level?
Something like that:http://www.blendernation.com/2012/08/27/using-an-android-phone-as-a-virtual
Or a more professional equipment (Spielberg with a virtual camera on the set of "Tin Tin"):
Thanks in advance!
