Marker Tracking

This program detects three markers in the picture provided by your camera, draws some stuff on them, and displays the height difference between two markers with respect to the coordinates system defined by the third one.



  • Download the tarball
  • Go into the directory. It contains the ARToolkit and the demo program
  • Go into examples/FerienAkademie/ and type make
  • If there are some clock problems with the libraries, go into lib/ and do ranlib -t *
  • Print the markers pattHiro.pdf, pattKanji.pdf, pattLO.gif
  • Plug in your camera, go into bin/ and launch ./torse
  • Then, enjoy! (Don't despair to find a good view for the markers to be detected!)
