The EMTS demo kit is an embedded stand-alone, high precision and low-cost 3D tracking system. The system positions an object in 3D, outputting the absolute position (XYZ) and rotation (pitch/yaw/roll) of the system components in respect to each other, making it a so-called true six degrees of freedom (6DOF) tracking system.
The AmfiTrack electromagnetic field (EMF) tracking system can be used for a wide range of applications. However, main benefits are full six degrees of freedom (6DOF) tracking, high precision, low system components cost, easy installation, and no line-of-sight issue, which as a very notable advantage compared with camera-based tracking systems.
Please also note, that the AmfiTrack technology is customizable, making it ideal for integration into our customers own products.

- Data logging python script
- AmfiTrack .NET .dll
- Minimal working example of AmfiTrack .dll
The AmfiTrack Viewer software is used when a visual representation of the tracking system output is necessary.
The kits allow to run a system with one single 3D magnetic field source (connected to power supply) and three individual battery-powered wireless sensors. Each sensor has a 3D magnetic field receiver and a high frequency link to the USB receiver hub. The receiver hub translates the position and orientation data from each sensor to the laptop software.
All calculations are being made in the stand-alone wireless sensors. Laptop software only shows 3D information on screen, not being involved in the 3D calculation algorithms.
3.1. Powering the source. The source can be powered by 5V USB from either the supplied external plug-in USB supply or a PC USB port.
3.2. Turning the sensors on/off.
-Turn the sensor ON: Hold the button for a few seconds, LED turns on.
-Turn the sensor OFF: Hold the button for a few seconds, LED turns off.
3.3. Charging the sensor.
The sensor contains a rechargeable Lithium battery. The charging starts when the sensor is connected to a 5V USB power source (external 5V USB power supply or PC USB port).
Charging indication (when the sensor is powered off):
-LED flashing white: Charging in progress
-LED constantly white: Charging complete
A complete charge cycle of a sensor from 0-100% will take approx. 1 hour.
3.4. Sensor low battery indicator:
A purple LED light indicates sensor low battery
Please note that a start-up calibration of the sensors are necessary after sensor power on, in order for the sensors to be start up calibrated and recognized by the system/software.
The sensor start-up calibration position does not need to be very precise at all, since it is a hemisphere calibration and not an absolute position calibration.
Start-up calibration instructions (and more) can be found in this video (start up calibration @ 1:40min): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9ALvqmkmaM Get started!
