XYZ blob tracking of markers on roving object

Hi,

Could OpenMV be used to provide 6-DOF tracking to an object with an IMU in it and a bunch of tracking LEDS or markers or recognizable blobs on it?

Something similar to the tracking camera used on Oculus CV1 if anyone is familiar with it.

I have not purchased the camera yet, but most reference material doesn’t immediately show if you can get a decent XYZ of a tracked object as an output to say add 6-DOF tracking to a 3-DOF VR HMD.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, it’s not like we have a function that does this. You’d have to build it up from first principles. However, other customers have done this. Adding an IMU helps additionally. See our twitter for a customer who did this. They didn’t post the code though.
