Motion Capture ("mocap") is the technique of digitising the movements of people, animals or objects. In the case of the ART Motion Capture system, markers are attached to the subject's limbs and can be worn on normal clothing (no need for lycra suits!). Data is captured by performing a series of movements in front of a series of pre-installed cameras.

one of our partners in Germany. Since 1999, ART has been one of the leading manufacturers of high-end optical motion tracking systems for virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR).
ART offers a wide range of object tracking and localisation options for the most diverse applications, including specific customer requirements. The company specialises in visualisation and optimisation in the design and production stages, motion capture for ergonomic studies as well as teaching and research projects in academic institutions where Powerwalls, CAVEs and HMDs are used. In this field of marker-based tracking, ART offers not only tracking systems and DTRACK tracking software, but also a range of unique interaction and navigation devices and accessories, such as Flystick and Fingertracking, which are specifically designed to provide extremely accurate operation with VR/AR applications.
ART also stands out for its specific adaptation of products for niche markets, such as a dedicated optical tracking solution to minimise visual intrusion in multilateral projection systems, as well as camera sizes optimised for limited tracking areas such as use in cars and aircraft cockpits.
All ART products are highly accurate, reliable and customisable. Research, development and production take place in Germany, which allows for good quality control and a high degree of flexibility. ART is located in the town of Weilheim, half an hour south of Munich.
