Hardware

Coming soon!
Strobotrack SDK allows to integrate Strobotrack live pose tracking and object detection algorithms into your custom software.. Currently supports capture with up to 4 depth sensors.

  • .NET 5 API for all features; C API for AI-based tracking and object detection
  • Win 10 / Linux platforms
  • Supported sensors:
  • Robust AI-based tracking is used to automate recovery in case of tracking errors
  • Proprietary tracking algorithm provides more accurate result compared to AI-based algorithms
  • Automatic background subtraction
  • Capture volume
    • For depth sensors: 7 by 7 feet (~ 2 by 2 m)
  • Live motion transfer to 3D character

Advantages

  • Robust AI-based tracking is used to automate the process
  • iPi Soft’s proprietary tracking is used to improve accuracy and fix weird poses that AI-based algorithm may provide
  • Recording and tracking with the same software minimize latency
  • Live motion transfer to 3D character and streaming to Unreal / Unity / custom software
  • Flexible tracking options allow to find optimal balance between tracking speed and accuracy for your particular hardware setup

FAQ

  1. Which depth Sensors are better?
    - The short answer currently is: Azure Kinect. See detailed  sensors comparison here
  2. Why is this better than iPi Motion Capture with real-time capability?
    - iPi Mocap does not provide API for integration and its real-time feature was designed having animation production application in mind. Using AI-based tracking allows to fully automate the procedure and automatically recover after tracking errors if any.
  3. How can I try this?
