Paper Abstract

This contribution describes the components necessary for measurement of the three-dimensional local position of objects with high accuracy and high measurement rate. The methodology is based on the FMCW (frequency modulated continuous wave) technology in state of the art technology described as sensor system. A high speed real-time network collects data and transfers it to a master processing unit (MPU) where 3-D position data is calculated. It is described how to measure and how to process position data for a local, wide area measurement system. Results are shown for a series of static measurements and an outdoor Motocross race.
