Electromagnetic trackers are greatly affected by magnetic field distortion resulting from metal objects and electronic equipment in close proximity. In this paper, we propose a rapid method for magnetic tracker calibration using a magneto-optic hybrid tracker. Although the calibration data can be acquired by freehand using the hybrid tracker, two problems arise as a result of freehand acquisition. One is the error caused by the time delay between the measurements of optical and magnetic… CONTINUE READING
