Title: Positioning systems for scale model cars - A survey of available systems and an application with Qualisys Track Manager
Authors: Odengård, Joakim
Abstract: This report is a brief survey of available positioning systems and techniques that can be applied to tracking a scale model car for the purpose of using it in a test bed for active safety systems in cars. It also treats of setting up the Qualisys Track Manager motion capture system for this purpose and an evaluation of its performance by looking at precision, range and trajectory fill rates of the tracked bodies. As a means of later implementing it into the test bed, a program is written for receiving a stream of positioning data from the motion capture software over a network. It was found that the motion capture system is capable of tracking a scale model vehicle within the majority of the test area with a residual of a few millimeters.
