Main Page → Motive Documentation → Info pane
The Info pane can be used to check tracking in Motive. There are two different types tool you can use from this pane; measurement tools and rigid body information. You can switch between different types from the menu. The measurement tool allows you to use a calibration wand to check detected wand length and the error when compared to the expected wand length.
The Measurement Tool is used to check calibration quality and tracking accuracy of a given volume. There are two tools in this: the Wand Validation tool and the Marker Movement tool.
This tool works only with a fully calibrated capture volume and requires the calibration wand that was used during the process. It compares the length of the captured calibration wand to its known theoretical length and computes the percent error of the tracking volume. You can analyze the tracking accuracy from this.
This tool calculates the measured displacement of a selected marker. You can use this tool to compare the calculated displacement in Motive against how much the marker has actually moved to check the tracking accuracy of the system.
The Rigid Bodies tool under Info pan in Motive displays real-time tracking information of a rigid body selected in Motive. This lists out real-time tracking information for a selected rigid body in Motive. Reported data includes a total number of tracked rigid body markers, mean errors for each of them, and the 6 Degree of Freedom (position and orientation) tracking data for the rigid body.
There are many potential combinations of Euler angles so it is important to understand the order in which rotations are applied, the handedness of the coordinate system, and the axis (positive or negative) that each rotation is applied about. The following conventions are used for representing Euler orientation in Motive:
