Augmented reality (AR) systems are often used to superimpose virtual objects or information on a scene to improve situational awareness. Delays in the display system or inaccurate registration of objects destroy the sense of immersion a user experiences when using AR systems. AC electromagnetic trackers are ideal for these applications when combined with head orientation prediction to compensate for display system delays. Unfortunately, these trackers do not perform well in environments that contain conductive or ferrous materials due to magnetic field distortion without expensive calibration techniques. In our work we focus on both the prediction and distortion compensation aspects of this application, developing a "small footprint" predictive filter for display lag compensation and a simplified calibration system for AC magnetic trackers.

In the first phase of our study we presented a novel method of tracking angular head velocity from quaternion orientation using an Extended Kalman Filter in both single model (DQEKF) and multiple model (MMDQ) implementations. In the second phase of our work we have developed a new method of mapping the magnetic field generated by the tracker without high precision measurement equipment. This method uses simple fixtures with multiple sensors in a rigid geometry to collect magnetic field data in the tracking volume. We have developed a new algorithm to process the collected data and generate a map of the magnetic field distortion that can be used to compensate distorted measurement data.

在我們研究的第一階段,我們提出了一種新的方法,使用擴展卡爾曼濾波器(Extended Kalman Filter)在單模型(DQEKF)和多模型(MMDQ)實現中,從四元數方向中跟踪角速度。在我們工作的第二階段,我們開發了一種新的方法,用於在沒有高精度測量設備的情況下對跟踪器產生的磁場進行映射。該方法使用具有多個傳感器的簡單固定裝置在跟踪區域內收集磁場數據。我們開發了一種新的算法來處理收集到的數據並生成磁場失真的地圖,以用於補償失真的測量數據。
