Infrared Light-Emitting Diodes for Precise Tool Tracking
The infrared emitting diode (IRED) is an active marker mounted on a ceramic base.
The optical tracker detects the infrared light emitted by the active markers and calculates the position and orientation of tools that incorporate them. Power for the IRED comes from an optional System Control Unit for wired tools or from an external supply (such as batteries) for wireless tools.
