This paper describes a hybrid optical-inertial tracking technology for fully-immersive projective displays. In order to track the operator, the operatorwears a 3DOF commercial inertial tracking system coupledwith a set of laser diodes arranged in a known configuration. The projection of this laser constellation on the display walls are tracked visually to compute the 6DOF absolute head pose of the user. The absolute pose is combined with the inertial tracker data using an extended Kalman filter…

The Hedgehog: A Novel Optical Tracking Method for Spatially Immersive Displays
TLDR
The Hedgehog is a novel six degree of freedom tracking system, the Hedgehog; which overcomes several limitations inherent in existing sensors and tracking technology and reliably estimates the pose of the user's head with high resolution and low spatial distortion.

TLDR
Simulating a laser-based tracking system that was originally developed for a six-sided spatially immersive system in environments with one and five walls shows that performance degrades with the number of walls, but it is shown that tracking with even one wall is still very feasible.

TLDR
A comparison study of the tracking accuracy of two commercially available wide-range position tracking systems suitable for CAVEs shows that the IS-900 has a much better accuracy over a larger range of operation than does the Flock of Birds; however, it is sensitive to the optimality of the ultrasound emitters configuration.
SCAAT: incremental tracking with incomplete information
