"Visualizing the Discrepancy between Physical and Virtual Measurement of the Six Degrees of Freedom in the CAVE"




Measurement Point Models


Below are representations of the 49 measuring positions in the CAVE. These indicate the physical locations of the tracker when mounted to the measuring device.



Vitual Position Models


Below is a visualization of my hypothesis of the discrepancy between the physical positions and the "virtual" positions of the tracker. These models represent the volume of space that the tracking system will detect (according to my hypothesis) for each physical postion.
