Application: Virtual reality tracker and tracker correction position method (Patent ID: US20240069651A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a virtual reality tracker consisting of two parts connected by a flexible component. The first part includes LEDs and an IMU for measuring acceleration and angular velocity, while the second part also includes LEDs. The system allows for real-time image generation based on detailed pose calculations using an inertial calculation program and a head-mounted display device.

The tracker correction position method outlined in the patent involves capturing images of LEDs on both parts, measuring acceleration and angular velocity, and correcting the tracker's position based on these inputs. The method includes using an IMU to calculate a detailed pose, transmitting this information to a head-mounted display device, and utilizing cameras on the device to calculate poses in three-dimensional space. The flexible component, typically a strap, plays a crucial role in the correction process by enabling the adjustment of poses at different time points through rotational displacement and a transform function. The method also involves solving for the transform function using data from multiple time points to ensure accurate position correction.
