Advanced Realtime Tracking is the world’s leading manufacturer of optical tracking systems for Virtual Reality (VR) in industrial applications. In addition, ART provides solutions for industrial measurement, medical applications and Motion Capture for ergonomics. ART also offers a variety of unique custom tracked input devices, such as our Flystick and Fingertracking products which have been specifically designed to optimize navigation and interaction with the major VR software applications. ART also provides the world’s only dedicated solution for unobtrusive optical tracking inside multi-sided projection systems.

At VR Meetup we will show the SMARTTRACK, a fully integrated solution for tracking systems up to 8ft, and ARTTRACK5, our high-end solution for large tracking volumes. Furthermore, a prototype for finger tracking with vibro-tactile feedback will be demonstrated.
