A METHOD FOR VISUALIZATION OF 3D MOTION DATA USING A MOBILE DEVICE


Abstract

3D motion visualization is a topic closely connected with motion capture. Motion capture data come in many file formats, one of which is C3D. The following paper presents an innovative method of motion visualization in virtual reality using Google Cardboard. Motion data are read from C3D files. The paper presents introduction to the technology used, analysis of existing solutions, presentation of the proposed method, its implementation and results.
