Manufacturer of motion-tracking devices Ascension Technology Corp. has released a software program that allows experimentation with its products in a standard Windows environment. Available for free download at ftp://ftp.ascension-tech.com/pub/ascension-tech.com/winBIRD/, WinBird helps users to learn about their tracking system and its capabilities.
Usable with single- and multisensor or multitransmitter configurations, the program enables users to change major device and system options to monitor how the changes affect returned data. On devices that support distortion detection, WinBird helps measure the amount of metal and noise interference in the environment. For multiple-transmitter systems, easy switching is achieved; for multisensor systems, sensors are separately displayed.
Download instructions and a Windows installer are available on the company's ftp site.
