A Fast Search Coil Sensing Method for Tracking Systems

Abstract:

Article Preview

It is important to track a free flying insect to investigate its flight performance. Conventional video tracking systems are difficult to track a highly maneuverable insect, because the capture frequency of the camera is limited and it can hardly get the position of the insect in real time. We proposed a fast sensing method for insect tracking based on magnetic search coil sensors. It can simultaneously determine the orientation and position of the sensors. We constructed a system, calibrated the magnetic device. We developed a set of calculating methods and measured several positions and angles of coil sensors. The results show that it can rapidly provide the tracking feedback information to meet the requirement for insect tracking.
