We are doing a project and I'm hoping you can give me some feedback . In our project, the research participant wears the optotrak on his leg and walks on the treadmill. There is a 3D screen in front of him which is an empty room full of obstacles such as step , boxes ... we are trying to measure how high the person lift is leg for each obstacle
Should I use an avatar and the avatar reads the location from optotrak ( so when person moves , avatar moves too) ? If yes , does avatar has a function for lifting leg and doing steps?
If not how do you do this ?

Do you want the participant to be able to see an avatar representation or do you just want to record the sensor data?

Just recording the data. Ie: if the participant lift his leg high enough to pass the obstacle

You can use vizconnect to map the tracker data to an avatar. See the avatars and tools (http://docs.worldviz.com/vizard/#vizconnect_tutorial_tool_avatar.htm) tutorial.
