Our products can be integrated with a number of software and hardware devices.
Qualisys Oqus Underwater is a motion capture camera that is designed to operate underwater. It consists of a Qualisys Oqus camera enclosed in a waterproof housing. The housing is equipped with a strobe built specifically for underwater use.
Oqus Underwater is suitable for a wide range of applications, such as ship design, naval research, fishing industry and sports science.
The Oqus Underwater use the same technology platform as our Oqus camera series, meaning that the same range of image sensors and lenses are available for Oqus Underwater. The system is controlled through the same software, Qualisys Track Manager, as our ordinary land-based systems.
Qualisys Track Manager takes full advantage of the features of the camera , such as active filtering and the ability to stream 6DOF-data to 3rd-party applications in real-time. Synchronization with external equipment is also possible just like any other Oqus based system.
The Oqus camera has integrated, full-frame, high speed video capability as an option. The underwater Oqus has this possibility as well and an underwater mocap camera is turned into a high-speed camera with a simple mouse click. High speed video is very useful to visualize measurements and overlay marker data on the real subjects.
Each underwater camera is pressure tested to 40m and is corrosion protected for use in salt water tanks or chlorinated swimming pools. Weight and volume is balanced to give the camera neutral buoyancy for easy handling in water.
In June 2011, we made underwater measurements at Valhallabadet in Göteborg. The result can be seen on YouTube.
Qualisys provides the possibility to measure underwater by using specially adapted Oqus motion capture cameras. Measure anything underwater, for example ship scale models, water sports, animation and more.
