OTUS Tracker and Software

Motion capture and object tracking for UAVs, drones, and robots.


The wireless Otus tracker is installed on and powered from your drone or robot through a 5V header or a micro usb. It weights under 60 g.


Two HTC Vive basestations are required. No calibration required!


The pose information is streamed wirelessly to a Windows, Linux or Mac computer. Using RCbenchmark Tracking Lab and our plugins, you can easily obtain the tracking information in ROS, Matlab (in development), C++ or a simple text file.

From $2280, all inclusive.
