Targets consists of several markers (minimum 4), and will give the 6DOF (degrees of freedom). In addition to our standard targets we offer several construction sets for your own targets and customised developments.
Here also, we distinguish between passive and active types.
For head tracking in passive or active stereo systems, tracking targets must be affixed to the stereo glasses. ART offers lightweight standard targets as well as several adapted targets (e.g. clip-on) for a range of commercially available stereo glasses.
For some glasses brands we offer the smaller and less obtrusive target geometry 8 (e.g. XPT8) additionally to the bigger, function optimized geometries 4 to 6.
Naming convention: short name + target geometryFor example: AET4

Some of the targets may involve longer delivery times.
Hand & Tree Targets
The hand target is designed for hands and elbows in usability/assembly studies. It is also frequently used as a small general-purpose target.
- HT23, HT25, HT26, HT27, HT29 through HT32
The claw target looks just the same as the hand target, but comes in a bigger size and is equipped with bigger markers.
- CT11 through CT16
Large hand target
This new hand target is designed for hand tracking in a two-camera tracking system. Its large size allows the user to make almost any movement with the hand without producing any occlusions.
- LHT1 and LHT2
Originally designed for tracking HMDs, the tree target is a general-purpose target for tracking from longer distances (see picture above). It is equipped with 20 mm markers.
- TT1 through TT5
Customised Passive Targets
In addition to our standard target collection, we specialise in creating non-standard targets customized to your specifications, varying size or radiant power. If you have special requirements regarding the target design, we can help by developing an appropriate rapid prototyping layout.
Target for Logitech Gamepad F710
As a special solution for gaming applications we designed a target for the Gamepad by Logitech. Of course it can be adapted to other Gamepad geometries.
Sensics zSight Target
A special target for the Sensics zSight SXGA HMD is built with coated markers for a robust tracking solution. Two different target geometries are available to allow concurrent usage of two HMDs in one tracking system.
Target for NVisor SX 60
Specially developed target with passive markers for the head-mounted display NVisor SX 60.
Robust Passive Targets
To track objects (e.g. tools) in industrial environments, targets have to be lightweight and robust. They should be inconspicuous and must not disturb the operators in their activity. With a target attached to both a tool and the processed object, the user can get all relevant information like position and rotation. A target can be designed with passive (ring) markers or active LED diodes.
A robust passive target uses laminated spherical markers. With the lamination the worker can touch it and it can be cleaned without damaging the reflection film. The geometry is bigger than an active target but no power supply is necessary.
Our Fingertracking targets use small and robust active markers, allowing a compact design with higher wearing comfort than the gloves you typically find in VR setups.
Robust Active Targets
An active target will be designed individually for each customer and tool, in order to make it perfectly fit to the geometry of the tool. The power supply can be directly sourced from the screwdriver. The target design ensures that it can be tracked in nearly every position.
