A New Method for Magnetic Position and Orientation Tracking

  title={A New Method for Magnetic Position and Orientation Tracking},
  author={Eugene Paperno and Ichiro Sasada and Eduard Leonovich},
The method is based on two-axis generation of a quasi-static rotating magnetic field and three-axis sensing. Two mutually orthogonal coils fed with phase-quadrature currents comprise the excitation source, which is equal to a mechanically rotating magnetic dipole. The resulting excitation field rotates elliptically at any position in the near-field region. The ac part of the squared field magnitude is a sinusoidal wave at twice the excitation frequency. The following set of parameters uniquely… CONTINUE READING
