CAST Software Debuts BlackTrax at PLASA 2010

The BlackTrax system works using a proprietary sensor device

CAST Software of Toronto, Canada will be debuting their newest technology, BlackTrax (patent pending), at PLASA, September 12-15 at Earls Court in London, Stand 1-G15. BlackTrax is a revolutionary motion tracking system for people and objects that operates in real time. BlackTrax is designed to work with CAST’s game-changing BlackBox system of multi-directional high-speed control coordination.

The BlackTrax system works using a proprietary sensor device that is placed on the moving object(s), giving tracking information for what we like to call Six Degrees of Freedom – X, Y, and Z coordinates (in First Phase), roll, pitching, and yaw angles (coming soon). BlackTrax monitors the velocity of the object(s) in motion, as well as giving important spatial relationships between objects and people in a 3D space – and each moving object or person is an individual measurable set of data, completely distinguished from the next. BlackTrax monitors all of these parameters at a very high speed and with stunning accuracy.

BlackTrax is safe, and uses redundant monitoring of several varieties to track the people and objects you need to monitor. When line of sight is breached in your system (which is the primary mode of tracking), inertial movement and X, Y, and Z parameters are still maintained until the person(s) or object(s) come back into the line of sight.

When you need realtime monitoring of one, two, or hundreds of objects and people in all six degrees of freedom, you need BlackTrax.

During PLASA, CAST will be also be demonstrating BlackBox, wysiwyg R25, a sneak preview of R26 and Vivien – Virtual Event Designer. To read more about any of these products, visit
