Qualisys provides motion capture cameras suitable for indoor, outdoor, and underwater capture. Our underwater cameras are the world’s only commercially available optical motion capture cameras for underwater use. They are designed to be mobile, robust, and trouble-free during operation and are pressure-tested to a depth of 40m. The cameras track lightweight markers attached to the vessel to measure 6DOF position and orientation. The accuracy of the measurements can reach down to 1mm for position and 0.1° for rotation. Researchers use our systems to track several underwater objects, including free-running AUVs, mooring lines, fishnet trawl doors, and oil pipeline motions.
