Application: Controller, control method, and wearable tracking system (Patent ID: US20240095942A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a controller that determines a position conversion relationship between a user's body part and the tracking position of a wearable device worn by the user. The controller obtains camera data and sensor data from the wearable device to establish this relationship and outputs fusion data based on it. The controller can identify the tracking position based on camera data, sensor data, or a fusion of both, allowing for accurate determination of the user's movements.

Furthermore, the patent includes claims detailing various configurations and methods for the controller to determine the position conversion relationship based on different data inputs, such as camera images, sensor data, posture parameters, and fusion data. The controller can predict the position of the wearing part in the current moment using extrapolation techniques and fusion algorithms, enhancing the accuracy of tracking user movements. Additionally, the patent covers the use of inertial measurement units in the sensor data and specifies the degrees of freedom measured, along with the different body parts, like limbs or fingers, where the wearable device can be worn. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive system for tracking user movements using wearable devices and advanced data processing techniques.
