Apex is a precise, robust, hand-held tracking tool. Its ergonomic design and flexible controls enable the user to interact intuitively with virtual objects in a 3D environment.
RELIABLE AND ROBUST TRACKING
With a set of active LED markers, Apex has been designed to reliably track within small two camera Vero systems up to the very largest Vantage system. A purpose built algorithm designed in the Vicon Tracker software fits a rigid body to the device, streaming reliable data straight to your third-party application.
Unlike other devices available for use in virtual environments, Apex provides haptic vibration. Simply enable via a third party software package using VRPN, for model collision warning, user feedback and object identification.
Apex is engineered to make the most of your capture volume. Its unique dodecahedron design gives your Vicon cameras an optimal view of the device. It can be tracked by one camera when two faces of the device can be seen, giving you plenty of space to be creative.
PLUG AND PLAY
With Bluetooth® wireless technology and charging via a convenient micro USB socket, it couldn't be simpler to get started with Apex. In open spaces, it will continue to communicate with the Tracker software up to 100 meters away, thanks to the Class 1 Bluetooth module. No proprietary receiver interface, no driver installation and no worries.
FLEXIBLE COLOUR NAVIGATION
The ergonomically designed handle has four buttons and an analog joystick with a center push switch providing a fifth button. The values of the controls are streamed through Tracker's VRPN server and are also available in DataStream SDK. This means you have complete control over how Apex performs predefined tasks in your application.
