What is a 6D-Marker?

The 6-D Marker is a simple motion capture system that can track and measure 3D image data with six degrees of freedom (X, Y, Z, Roll, Pitch, and Yaw) using only one camera and one 6D-Marker. It's compact structure allows users to measure various automotive tests, including engine vibration and vehicle impacts, which are difficult to analyze with a standard motion capture system.

With 6D-Marker's high precision printed reference points at the four corners, six degree of freedom, or 6DoF (X, Y, Z, Roll, Pitch, and Yaw) can be measured using only a single marker.

The VMP (variable moire pattern) placed on the upper right hand sides of the marker is a lenticular lens with a moire pattern that changes according to the viewing angle. It can measure the markers orientation angle more accurately than conventional AR markers when the image is shot from the front.

In addition, the FDP (flip detection pattern), located on the left hand and lower sides is the part where the black and white pattern is reversed according to the viewing angle, and indicates the markers physical orientation. The symbol at the center of the marker is used to identify each marker, with up to 32 (0-31) variations available.
