Precise positioning of the head-mounted display in industrial applications

Project 1.2.1.1/18/A/006 No 1.22 “Precise positioning of the head-mounted display in industrial applications”

SIA Lightspace Technologies starts a new research project “Precise positioning of the head-mounted display in industrial applications”. The project is administrated by SIA LEO Pētījumu centrs (Competence Centre of Electrical and Optical Equipment Production Sector of Latvia).

The main objective of research is to study application of freely positioned infrared optical cameras for head-mounted display positioning and orientatation detection in industrial applications.

The planned actions of the project are: infrared optical camera set-up and calibration, design and manufacturing of Infrared marker, validating the headmounted-display tracking precision in static and dynamic scenarios in “industrial-like” applications.

As a result, we expect to create a solution for tracking position of the head-mounted display in 5 x 5 m large industrial-like room, thus enabling the industrial use cases with Lightspace AR headsets.

The foreseen duration of the project is 6 months, starting on December 1st, 2021. The total planned costs of the project is 66 492,01 EUR, consisting of 35 739,46 EUR (68,73 %) public funding and 30 752,55 EUR private funding.
