Mocap Articles

In the Movlab Laboratory my main work is mocap capture, so there is 2 links with interessing information about this theme:


"The Vicon Toolkit is a framework for designing real time applications using the Vicon system. Vicon Toolkit provides samples in C++ and C#. This page has been created to provide a brief introduction to Vicon components, functionality, tutorials of use, and programming tips."

Brad's FIE Blog - Mocap Series

"I'm going to write a series of blog entries about optical motion capture and how it works. Knowing whats going on inside a mocap system can help an operator better utilize it. The series will focus on NaturalPoint's OptiTrack cameras and systems, with references to other mocap systems and ideas."

Thanks both authors for the good articles.
