Coolux launches ID tags for projection mapping
coolux GmbH has unveiled a product for real-time tracking and projection-mapping applications.
The coin-sized ID Tags claim to make real-time tracking scenarios not only easier to set up, but also more reliable and more cost-effective.
Interactive projections, camera automation, stage tracking and lighting control are just some of the applications for the tags, which can be addressed with a unique ID. Up to 256 different unique Ids can be tracked in real-time within a single setup.
One individual tag has two LEDs onboard and can have between one to two additional infrared LEDs attached to it. Tracking people or objects this way is achieved using a purely optical transmission system, thus avoiding the many pitfalls of radio control based setups.
