Abstract

We designed and tested a three-dimensional motion tracking system which displays acquired and derived data using Augmented Reality. This setup, based on a Virtual Reality headset and its controllers, is a relatively low-cost, high-precision, 6 degrees-of-freedom, high-speed, multiple-objects tracking device. This apparatus proves to be a very high-quality motion sensor which can be used in the physics laboratory for motion tracking. Stereo cameras may also be attached to the headset in order to achieve Augmented Reality, which can be a winning addition in order to effectively use these devices in the physics laboratory. In view of its characteristics, this system can be adopted in the study of motion both at high school and undergraduate physics laboratories.
