Polhemus (Booth 12)
Polhemus pioneered motion tracking over 40 years ago, introducing head tracking technology for aviation—something they still do today. Continuing to offer simple, low latency solutions has paved the way for other leading markets, including Virtual Reality, Biomechanics, and Health Care. Along with their accuracy, low latency and simplicity, our motion trackers provide 6 degree-of-freedom measurement, with sensors that are easily embedded and affordable. This has made Polhemus technology a top choice for use in some of the world’s most sophisticated and commercially successful VR training simulators. Polhemus powers VRSim’s SimWelder™ welding simulator and CAE Healthcare’s Vimedix™ ultrasound simulator—just to name a few. Polhemus continues to bring new products to market—the latest being the Micro Sensor 1.8™—a tiny 6DOF sensor designed originally for tracking a catheter inside a training manikin. Micro Sensor 1.8 provides the same 6DOF high-fidelity motion tracking with the accuracy and ease-of-use electromagnetics is known for.
