VerticalPillars Environment

VerticalPillars Environment

VerticalPillars Environments are IR markup layouts for vertical tracking areas.

VerticalPillars Environment structure

VerticalPillars Environments are a type of IR markup layout. They consist of IR markers that are grouped into vertical reference bars (pillars). By default, the pillar consists of two or three IR markers connected in series.
Unlike the HorizontalGrid Environment, there are several reference bars types in a VerticalPillars Environment. Pillars have different proportions of their installed IR markers. This is due to the fact that the features in the VerticalPillars Environment are formed in 3D space.
The system provides some options for the location of IR markers on a pillar. Differences in the height of markers provide more features and make it easier for the tracker to determine its position. For the same purpose, setting the reference bars at different heights, not just on the floor, can be used.
A VerticalPillars Environment can contain no more than 50 pillars.

VerticalPillars Environment coordinate system

The VerticalPillars Environment uses a three-dimensional coordinate system, that is, the reference bars coordinates are specified in 3D space (X, Z, Y), as shown in the figure below. The Environment Center is defined using a pair of first reference bars that only move synchronously. The VerticalPillars Environment coordinate system origin corresponds to the midpoint of the segment between these reference bars and is located in the plane of their lower IR markers.

VerticalPillars Environment Parameters

The VerticalPillars Environment has the following parameters:
When setting up a VerticalPillars Environment, algorithms for tracking and features optimization are not used. All that the user needs to do is to match the location of pillars on the scheme and in the room. For more details, see the section Configuring the VerticalPillars Environment in AntilatencyService.
