Application: Large space tracking using a wearable optics device (Patent ID: US20230367390A1)

The patent by BAE Systems Plc describes systems and methods for determining a user's head pose using images captured by a head-mounted camera with markers on a surface. The method involves identifying stored markers with predetermined orientations, calculating marker orientations, determining absolute poses, and calculating the user's head pose relative to the surface. The system includes a head-worn display with a camera and a processor to process images, identify markers, calculate orientations, and determine head poses based on absolute marker poses.

The method and system outlined in the patent enable accurate determination of a user's head pose by analyzing captured markers on a surface in the field of view of a head-mounted camera. By comparing captured markers with stored markers in a database, calculating orientations, and determining absolute poses, the technology provides a comprehensive approach to tracking head movements in relation to the surface. The use of a head-worn display with camera capabilities and a processor for image processing and marker identification enhances the accuracy and efficiency of determining the user's head pose in various applications.
