QualiWand: Towards Optimising Feedback for Motion Capture System Calibration
Conference poster, 2014
This work in progress report presents preliminary results on the design of a feedback device that supports the task of calibrating a motion capture system. Calibrating motion capture systems is needed for their proper operation. It requires unique, dynamic actions and demands spatial awareness from the user. The goal of this inquiry is to find ways of providing feedback that will guide the user to perform the task with maximum efficiency so that the calibrated volume is optimal. This paper contains a description of the task and our initial design of a feedback system. We introduce QualiWand - and augmented calibration device that will enable us to study which feedback form is most optimal for the task. We then propose a plan for studying sound, visual and tactile feedback.
