Is it possible if for example during skiing, snowboarding or go kart riding and record the visual as well as the motion cues with a smartphone equip with accelerometer? The smartphone accelerometer theoretically will be able to record G-force at x,y,z axis in relation position of the camera. But of course this method cannot possible record yaw, roll and pitch. Since the yaw, roll and pitch can be measured subjectively from the video (change in direction of the camera) this issue should be no problem.
And if this is possible can anyone maybe fabi who is experienced in the software department to make this software. This software can even be in form of plugin to a popular video/media player.
I have just found out that X-sim has plugin called "video motion plugin verson 2.0". It has motion maker software which you can use to create or modify motion cues frame by frame for any video files. This motion cues can then be played by the video motion plugin with overlying windows media player playing the video. There is a settings to adjust the sync as well.
I ll study this and learn to use this. But if anyone has done it already, can you give me a short video with the motion cues so that i can make my learning curve more exponential.
I'll have to look for these files... I remember I took some really long ones with a gopro driving a car in Greece.
Its easy to make your own videos, the datalogger is easy to setup for capture, and now a days you can use it to capture serial data from arduino equipped with 9dof sensors on it.
Thanks thanos, I ll research more about arduino and 9dof sensor. I have no idea yet about arduino, but i ll learn it. Or i can try find a datalogger that can capture accelerometer and gyroscope data of android. But then i ll have to convert the data to CSV format in order to convert it to x-sim format.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
