Paper Abstract

This paper describes a modification to an Army Driver's Enhancement (DVE) system. The FLIR turret gimbals are instrumented with resolvers to enable a feedback control loop. The FLIR video is displayed on a head-mounted binocular display system which has an integrated head tracker for pointing the FLIR turret. The paper describes and compares several candidate head tracker technologies. An acoustic head tracker was selected as a baseline to demonstrate the concept in a simple and quick manner. Additionally, a hybrid optical-inertial tracker implementation is discussed which also has capability to minimize effects of vibration on the DVE system.
