Polhemus FASTRAK motion tracker

The Workhorse 6DOF Motion Tracker that Set the Standard in Tracking

Product Overview

FASTRAK® set the gold standard in motion tracking years ago, and remains a top seller today. This award-winning tracker is known for delivering real-time, 6DOF tracking that is reliable and accurate. The system has an operational range of approximately five feet with the standard source, with the option to extend the field of range up to ten feet. Utilizing our proprietary AC electromagnetic technology, FASTRAK® provides both position and orientation data with no need for additional calculations.

Since no cameras are used for tracking, there are no line-of-sight issues, and continuous tracking can be achieved, as with all Polhemus motion trackers. FASTRAK® trackers are used in research studies at some of the most prestigious universities in the world, along with powering flight simulators, and many other varied applications. Key features are highlighted below; see the FASTRAK® brochure for a complete description and product specifications.

Adding our ergonomically designed stylus turns FASTRAK® into a free-form digitizer. This allows for free-form, point specific, 3D data capture that is as simple to use as pressing a button, achieving pinpoint accuracy of unlimited data points.
