The position of a rigid body can be described with six parameters: three positions coordinates (x, y and z), which gives the position of a specific point on the body, and three attitude angles (roll, pitch and yaw), which gives the orientation in space.
The term 6DOF, or 6D position of the body, refers to these six parameters. Using Six Degrees of Freedom (6DOF), also known as 6-dimensional (6D) motion tracking, it is possible to compute and analyze the position and orientation of a rigid body using only a single camera.
6DOF is available as an option to TEMA and TrackEye Motion Analysis Software. Application areas include aerospace, military & defense, product development / R&D and motion analysis scenarios where fitting several cameras is impossible.
