Abstract

In the study, a three-dimensional tracking method of objects within large volumes has been developed, which is based on multiple laser generated light planes which rotate at constant angular velocity. The coordinate time count data is memory mapped directly into the controlling CPU, by employing a pipeline architecture. With this pipeline architecture, the present system is capable of tracking the XYZ coordinates for up to 60 targets, without affecting the data acquisition bandwidth. To determine its performance in a 10 cubic meter field view, extensive testing was performed on the system prototype.
