Abstract

Thales is introducing a vastly improved version of its wide-area tracking inertia-optical tracking system (IS-1200 VisTracker). The new VisTracker technology is has several enhancements including device miniaturization, an embedded image processor, improved optics, a higher resolution imaging CMOS monochrome sensor, power reduction, and ruggedization. A review of the IS-1200 architecture and new components is discussed. Examples of the IS-1200 initial deployment are given for AR applications.
