Is it possible to get xyz movement from the sensor as well as yaw pitch roll? If so how would you do this?
Our 3-Space sensors are only capable of accurately tracking rotational movements. Translational tracking (distance, position) would require double integration of the sensor's acceleration reading, which inherently introduces a lot of error. Although we do offer pedestrian tracking as a form of positional tracking with our mocap suits, this will only work with humans as it relies on walking motions, and one foot being on the ground at any given time.
If you had some other way of tracking the velocity or position at any given time, it would be possible to use this data in conjunction with our sensor to determine the position by dead reckoning: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_reckoning.
I hope this answered your question. Please let us know if you have anymore!
