The agile development and validation of innovative methods for localization and positioning on an industrial scale requires the existence of a reference system. The Fraunhofer IML has two research halls with 1000 m² and 650 m² area in Dortmund. In both halls a high-precision motion capturing system is available. By using high-resolution infrared cameras, several 100 objects can be detected and tracked in real time with an accuracy in the sub-millimeter range. For the live visualisation of measurement data to evaluate the reality, a laser projection system is available. The high-precision localization and the industrial environment provide optimal conditions for the development of industry-related applications.
