A motion-tracking system tracks the movement of the object and transmits the sensed data to the application for further processing. It provides real-time information about the moving object to the system produced from motion tracking. Specially equipped hardware & software programs are required to capture data from motion tracking.
Motion tracking intensifies human-computer interaction, and consequently, is a crucial aspect in the computer animation of a 3-D model. For surveillance, video tracking can be used to locate a moving object using a camera for tracking unusual user movement. Specialized gear or clothing with embedded sensors can be worn by the user for more convenient motion tracking. In such a case, motion data is sensed by the sensors rather than captured by cameras. Such aspects throw a positive stretch toward the growth of the motion-tracking system market.
The increasing demand for motion-tracking systems in an array of industries is driving the growth of the global motion-tracking system market. Some of the major technologies involved are virtual reality and security/surveillance systems. Computer vision is one of the prime areas of interest where 3D motion capture allows game developers to recreate real-time body picture motions with an artificial 3D environment. Moreover, the field of gaming opens avenues of possibilities in fields such as robotics, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) applications.
The increasing usage of computer vision technology in commercial and government sectors is also promoting the growth of 3D motion capture technology. In the entertainment industry, motion tracking is essential behind the scenes of movies and games. Considering all aspects, 3D motion capture is pegged to be one of the most dynamic and competitive industries in media and entertainment.
