Mismatched Translation Between Real Motion and Display
Iím using Optotrak to capture motion to update the visual scene accordingly. However, I canít get the scene to react properly to the marker motion. Below is how the first-person view in the scene changes when moving I move with the marker.
  • Marker turns to the left = scene turns to the left
  • Marker turns to the right = scene turns to the right
  • Marker moves forward = scene moves to the right
  • Marker moves backward = scene moves to the left
  • Marker moves left = scene moves forward
  • Marker moves right = scene moves backward

When we rotate left and right, the scene updates how we want. But as shown above, the 4 translations do not update the scene correctly. I performed my Optotrak alignment to match the XYZ coordinates of the pit.osgb model that Vizard provides, but the real-life motion still doesnít update the visual scene correctly.

Am I approaching this wrong? Is there something I need to add to the script regarding the coordinate system?

It should not be necessary to make any modifications to the coordinate system in Vizard. Try testing with the following script after specifying the correct hostname:


import viz


opto = viz.add('optotrak.dle',0,'')
body = opto.getBody(0),viz.MainView)

This video tutorial is quite old but it may help with the optotrack setup.

I repositioned the cameras while using the default Optotrak alignment and it now tracks properly.
