A.R.T. GmbH, a manufacturer of high-end optical tracking systems and advanced localization solutions, presented their SMARTTRACK solution in a session“Free Detection of Objects in Camera Images – robust and exact” at this year’s it3D Summit in Bordeaux for the first time.

This catch and tracking technology opens up unimagined application possibilities, since now any objects can be detected and tracked - and are found again, especially when losing position, without the user having to intervene, the company said.

Possible applications are recognition and tracking of work pieces or complete vehicle bodies, support at assembly maintenance tasks and tracking in general, even in difficult environments with poor lighting or cluttered background.

Immersion, ART Partner and European virtual reality company, organizes the it3D Summit every two years to provide participants the opportunity to discuss and network with experts and industry representatives about Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality.
