"It is certainly an impressive tracking solution."
– Trevor Nash, Editor, Military Training & Simulation News
LIBERTY LATUS (Large Area Tracking Untethered System) cuts the cord, delivering a totally wireless, full 6 Degree-Of-Freedom (6DOF) motion tracking solution. Capable of tracking up to 12 independent markers over large areas, LIBERTY LATUS offers exceptional speed and ease- of-use, facilitated by an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) and a comprehensive software developer's kit (SDK). With optimized signal-to-noise ratios, LIBERTY LATUS offers remarkable stability, providing consistent, high-quality data without wires. Experience a revolutionary new dimension in magnetic motion tracking with LIBERTY LATUS.
Indoor GPS Tracking Solution
Also available in 2D (X,Y for Longitude and Latitude replication) configuration, LIBERTY LATUS is the solution to indoor GPS tracking needs and integrator requirements. Operable with variable positional resolution, indoor GPS tracking can now be achieved in all environments including: traditional steel shipping containers, stick built homes and structures, concrete facilities, and large, outdoor operational fields of interest. LIBERTY LATUS is a tracker ideal for large area motion tracking for such applications as training, simulation, and mission rehearsal preparation.
The Wireless Revolution
LIBERTY LATUS represents a revolution in motion tracking, combining state-of-the art wireless functionality with unsurpassed performance. There are absolutely no wires--each marker is fully self-contained. Each marker is tracked in space by a receptor. Up to 16 receptors can be connected for hundreds of square feet of total coverage. For an even larger coverage area, multiple LIBERTY LATUS systems can be concatenated. Because of its short range distributed receptor architecture and enhanced signal-to-noise ratio, LIBERTY LATUS avoids distortion effects normally seen with long range electromagnetic motion tracking systems.
Each system supports up to 12 markers. A proprietary magnetic data link ensures absolutely stable wireless communication regardless of how many markers and receptors are in use. The update rate is 188Hz for up to 8 markers or 94Hz for 9 to 12 markers.
The Tools You Need
LIBERTY LATUS includes a streamlined and intuitive GUI for Microsoft Windows® stocked with useful tools. Three independent user-definable profiles allow setting system parameters such as filtering, output formats, coordinate rotations and more. This valuable feature makes LIBERTY LATUS ideal for accommodating multiple users or applications. An integrated motion box provides navigable points of view for visualization and is also capable of displaying text data. The system offers versatile output capabilities, allowing users to select position in Cartesian coordinates (English or metric) and orientation in direction cosines, Euler angles or quaternions. Additional features include data recording and playback, plus rapid data exporting via Microsoft® "Named Pipe."
Polhemus understands that creating groundbreaking solutions requires the right tools. That's why LIBERTY LATUS includes a comprehensive sSoftware Developer's Kit (SDK). The SDK features API libraries that facilitate easy integration into custom applications.

Advanced A/C Technology
Polhemus pioneered A/C motion tracking and has refined and perfected the technology through numerous generations. Unlike products based on pulsed D/C technology, Polhemus trackers are not negatively affected by the earth's magnetic field, power outlets or electric motors. Because A/C motion tracking is also more accurate and faster, it's clearly the superior choice. In fact, Polhemus originated pulsed D/C technology, but chose not to pursue it because of performance shortcomings.
