    Abstract

    A motion tracking system for tracking an object composed of object parts in a three-dimensional space. The system comprises a number of magnetic field transmitters; a number of field receivers for receiving the magnetic fields of the field transmitters; a number of inertial measurement units for recording a linear acceleration; a number of angular velocity transducers for recording angular velocities. The system further comprises a processor for controlling the transmitters and receiving signals coming from the field receivers and the inertial measurement unit; which processor contains a module for deriving orientation and/or position information of the constituent object parts of the object on the basis of the received signals. The processor is configured for intermittently controlling the transmitters transmit at a predetermined frequency, wherein the position and/or orientation information is derived by periodically calibrating the motion information coming from the inertial measurement unit with the motion information coming from the magnetic field receivers.
