View Full Version : Synchronizing Vicon system with force sensors

I am trying simultaneously record kinematic and kinetic data by
synchronizing data from a Vicon system with a set of 6-D force sensors.
The two most logical approaches I can think of are either using a
trigger to simultaneously initiate data collection of both systems or by
using one of the two systems to send out a pulse to synchronize around.

The Vicon is currently collected using the Vicon software and the Force
sensor data is collected in LabView.

It appears that the "External Clock" and "Gated REF" use BNC connections
on the MX Sync box of the Vicon system which would be the best way to
sync the systems.

If you have any experience in the best way to do this, please let me know.
