Abstract

Vastly miniaturized commercially available interactive 3D tracking devices and systems for use in virtual environments are discussed. This paper will review the technological improvements to this commercially available technology and discuss new enhancements including device miniaturization, power reduction, and ruggedization.The goal of these improvements was to reduce size and weight of head worn tracking devices foruse with passive immersive display systems. The major changes include a 2-fold reduction in the size and weight of the wearable sensor devices and improvement of wireless tracking capability. This paper will briefly describe the underlying technology advances that have allowed for these new miniaturized and ruggedized 3D interactive device designs.
