The history of MoCap Systems is related to the implementation of a visionary idea, which allowed for the creation of the most modern motion capture system (MOCAP) in the world, capturing human movement with great precision. As part of this project, the company’s team built Europe’s largest commercially available, industrial 3D printer working in additive technology, and as part of a project called Oversiz3D, it can change the way we recycle plastic.
The motion capture system developed by MoCap Systems is the best system in the world to capture human movement, which can be used in the computer games industry, the film industry and even medicine. It owes its stringent parameters to an innovative approach – instead of traditional cameras, it uses a specific cage in which there is a 12-watt blue laser and a system of 5 transfer mirrors, 2 parabolic mirrors and 12 mirrors generating laser surfaces. The actor whose movement is pictured wears a costume on which 200 photodiodes are placed.
– In camera systems, the accuracy fluctuates on the level of single centimeters.
We want to go down to the micrometer level, thanks to which our solution will be more accurate by two orders of magnitude. It will also eliminate the need for time-consuming computer processing, e.g. moving pixels or removing artifacts. Our system will achieve near-perfect results, available in real time – comments Patryk Szymczak from MoCap Systems.
Such accuracy of the system opens up new possibilities for the use of motion capture systems – they can be used not only in the film, game and VR industry, but also in robot control, e.g. in the medtech sector, e.g. when performing surgery or dynamic posturography of children. It would be a real alternative to static body posture examinations, enabling the construction of a prevention system for children in this field, available throughout the country.
– Our project will be ready to be shown to the world at any moment. We have a ready prototype, technological demo that we want to present on the market. We are currently exploring our capabilities and looking for entities that would be interested in using our system or investing in its development or commercialization. – adds Szymczak.
