Re: 24 Camera Layout

Bah!
I've been planning this upgrade so long that I've already imagined doing it -- so I've counted too many cameras.

I'm upgrading from 12 to 18, not 18 to 24.

Would the "pattern" change significantly from there?
Thanks for any help!

Re: 24 Camera Layout

Thank you, Mike, for the excellent guidance.

Are there any strategies for avoiding the blinding problem, e.g., an upward-looking camera looking into a downward-looking camera?

24 Camera Layout

<r>Hello!<br/> <br/> We have been using OptiTrack V100:R2 cameras with TrackingTools with great success in our mobile robotics lab -- great product!<br/> <br/> I am currently reconfiguring the lab to use 24 cameras (up from 18 cameras) to maximize the captured volume -- we're now adding some small a...

Re: Left-handed coordinate system in Tracking Tools.

<t>For clarification:<br/> <br/> When using the Calibration Square:<br/> The marked "axis" Z is the one that flips depending on the selection of Right-handed = TRUE/FALSE in TT application settings, right?<br/> Y is always "up", X is always positive in the direction of the unmarked leg, and Z is NEG...

Re: TT_IsTrackableTracked() compiler error

<t>Is there a resolution to this?<br/> We are having a similar linking problem as we attempt to write our own code based on the samples from the website.<br/> <br/> While I understand that emailing to support allows communication at a different level to debug the problem, it would be nice if the sol...

Re: area of capture volume

<t>I see that the "maximum setup area is approx. 20' x 20'"... what vertical size corresponds to this (maximum) volume? How many cameras are required to achieve this?<br/> <br/> I have a lab space that is 18'x17.5', and I'd like to capture ground to ~5-6'. I currently have 6 cameras (V100R2:FLEX) wi...

Re: Tracking Tools, V100R2, and USB Device Not Recognized

<t>In the power cycles, I usually unplugged the Hub-to-computer USB cable first, then removed power from the Hub. Sometimes I additionally disconnected the cameras at this stage. I tried reconnecting the cameras both before and after reconnecting the Hub-to-computer USB cable (with power to the Hub ...

Re: Tracking Tools, V100R2, and USB Device Not Recognized

<t>I purchased an Ultra 5 Port USB 2.0 PCI card and installed it.<br/> <br/> This allows me to, at least, see all 6 cameras, although the camera data is quite unreliable. Over the course of a few power cycles of the OptiHub, data from up to 3 cameras would cease to be displayed. I don't know if this...

Tracking Tools, V100R2, and USB Device Not Recognized

<t>Our lab very recently purchased and received a Tracking Tools 2.0 package, including 6 V100R2 cameras, 2 OptiHub USB hubs, and USB Hardware Key. <br/> <br/> The software installed fine. I plugged in the OptiHub, which was correctly and successfully installed (driver version 2.50.0.0, 11/19/2009)....
