This site gives an impression of my ongoing F16 pitbuilding activities.
and is the homebase for info about the AIC project (Aircore and Indicator Controller)
and Force Controller Cougar modification (FCC3).
Update 17th november
New pcb's are ready. First new proto assembled and tested.
It works :)
Using state of the art electronics, like solid state magnetometer, accelerometer and gyroscopes it is possible to make a 3 DOF headtracker that can work independantly. No camera or InfraRed needed!
On the picture you see a preliminary beta prototype of my inertial headtracker, bases on open source hard- and software.
Software used is FaceTrackNoIR by Wim Vriend. Hardware is based on the freeIMU project from Fabio Varesano and Arduino.
Second prototype is in the making and will be shown here when ready.
The pcb will become available in the near future.
As of now tracking is limited to 3DOF. 6DOF will be possible using a webcam, but we are working on 6DOF with the same sensor board.
Here are some pictures of my homebrew F16 pit:
As such the products shown here are all "home made" and developed in close collaboration with:
Cars "Falcas" Burgers
Mike "Kabar" Williams
Olivier "Red Dog" Beaumont
Wouter "Ripley" van Raavens
