Dear Members,

I am planning to purchase an outdoor motion capture system for biomechanics research and need some advice from experienced users of such systems.

While there is a plethora of motion capture system in the market, the system I need has to be able to function well in an outdoor environment as certain constraints do not allow me to reproduce the setting in a laboratory. Because of this outdoor requirement, certain traditional motion capture system (e.g. Vicon) is not suitable due to occlusion, environment interference or large number of equipment needed to be set up. Has anyone evaluated a system suitable for outdoor use?

I came across a couple of motion capture system, namely Gypsy Gyro by Meta Motion, Analogus and Animazoo; and Shapewrap by Measurand but is sceptical about their accuracy, software roboustness and suitability for biomechanics research. Hope to hear some feedback from users of these systems.

Thank you very much for your time and advice!
