Nokov Motion Capture System

Precise motion tracking and acquisition of pose data of robotics in large spaces and special spaces.Establish real- time feedback of position and angle data, then output the data to other software (Matlab, C++, etc.) through SDK for secondary development

What can Nokov do for the motion control and pose planning of robotics and UAV?

Data Acquisition

Acquire data including 3D coordinates, 6Dof, joint angle, Yaw, Roll, Pitch and Euler angle, and provide consistent and smooth motion data for the pose control and motion planning of robotics/UAVs.

Validation of Algorithm

As a space positioning system, it engages in the construction of a networked multi-agent cooperative control experiment platform to validate the control algorithm of robotics and UAVs.

Secondary Development

Data can be input into Matlab, C++ and other software in real time through SDK for secondary development and application.
