Title: MOVEMENT TRACKING AND SIMULATION DEVICE AND METHOD
Abstract:
Apparatus for dental simulation comprising: a display; one or more processors; a hand piece comprising a light emitter and an inertial measurement unit (IMU), wherein the IMU is in communication with at least one of the one or more processors, and wherein the IMU is configured to generate IMU position and orientation data, wherein the IMU position and orientation data describes the position and orientation of the hand piece; at least two cameras in communication with at least one of the one or more processors, wherein each of the at least two cameras is configured to generate a series of images using light emitted by the light emitter; wherein the one or more processors are configured to: receive the series of images from each of the at least two cameras, generate, based on two dimensional coordinate data derived from the series of images, three dimensional coordinate data identifying the position of the LED; receive the IMU position and orientation data;and further wherein the one or more processors are configured to combine the IMU position and orientation data and the three dimensional coordinate data to generate simulation instructions, and to display, on the display, a three dimension virtual image of an object and animate movement of the object according to the simulation instructions.
