  4. Abstract:
  5. The fusion of the optical and inertial tracking systems seems an attractive solution to solve the shadowing problem of the optical tracking systems, and remove the time integration troubles of the inertial sensors. We developed a fusion algorithm for this purpose, based on the Kalman filter, and examined its efficacy to improve the position and orientation data, obtained by each individual system. Experimental results indicated that the proposed fusion algorithm could effectively estimate the 2 seconds missing data of the optical tracker
