Paper Abstract

In this paper we review the problem of measuring position and orientation using AC magnetic fields, outlining the two traditional solutions to the problem: analytical field models and field maps. We analyze the limitations of each of these solutions and present a novel solution to this problem, known as "adaptive magnetic tracking". We present an outline of the theoretical basis of the tracker, a discussion of its advantages and experimental results that demonstrate its unique and revolutionary abilities and flexibility.
