Synertial designs, develops and markets advanced motion capture, motion measurement and wearable systems for tracking, gaming, biomechanics, simulation, entertainment, rehabilitation and enhancement technologies.
Inertial Systems are what Synertial do. They are incredibly accurate as all the motion is picked up by individual sensors placed on the actors body. It’s the reading from these sensors that are sent to the computer and creates the motion. The main benefit of inertial systems is that they are incredibly accurate. But they can suffer from drift. Which means the character moves in space without being locked into position.
The best bits of the optical system are combined with the best bits of the inertial system
With Synertial’s Mocapsuit. They have combined the inertial suit with the HTC vive lighthouse system. This give’s a hybrid Opto-Inertial motion capture system that has immense accuracy but with no occlusion or drift!
