High-precision, real-time pose estimation of tools and objects in medical applications
The FRAMOS OTS is a tracking system based on stereo computer vision that can be used for real-time tracking applications requiring high accuracy. Technological advantage lies in the ability to overcome current practical difficulties such as line of sight problems while opening the way for further developments of inside-out tracking solutions in the medical domain.

Application fields

The FRAMOS OTS is suitable for all measuring applications of object position and orientation that require high accuracy.

High-precision guidance within robot applications

High-precision guidance or tracking of handheld-devices, i.e. computer aided medical procedures

3D measurement
High-precision localization of handheld or machine-guided measuring tools

Technology description

A stereo camera system examines a specific measuring volume with up to 25 frames per second. The localization of attached passive markers on the surface of the object determines the accurate 3D position of the measuring object. The marker geometry is generic and can be adapted to the specific needs of the application within a one-time learning procedure.

High-precision in real-time
Using reliable industrial hardware components the system achieves for example an accuracy of 20 µm (RMS) with 10 µm (SD) at a frequency of 25 Hz in a 400 x 400 x 300 mm³ volume.

Robust recognition
The inherent implementation of modern image processing methods guarantees a precise pose calculation even in case of partial occlusion of individual or multiple markers, shadowing effects or occlusion due to objects within the direct line-of-sight.
Strong atmospherically and mechanically stressed or stained markers can be easily replaced since the markers consist of a material with a self-adhesive side. A very fast and intuitive learning procedure of the new marker set-up ensures consistently precise measuring results.

Individual marker set-up
The flat markers consist of a self-adhesive, retro-reflective film. Compared to the typically used expensive one-way spheres with a fixed dimension and geometry, our markers are cost-efficient and can be individually adjusted in both position and size. Through a teaching algorithm within the FRAMOS software framework, an arbitrary marker ensemble is applicable on any object geometry; this also masters the detection on difficult multi-coloured surfaces.

Intuitive error analysis
Many tracking systems in the market use different non-visual methods such as, for example, magnet tracking. These methods are highly likely to be disrupted by many factors and lack of reasonable solutions to find the sources of such errors. Using a vision-based method intuitively reveals a malfunction which then can be immediately eliminated.

Company details


Since 30 years, FRAMOS GmbH serves customers in the field of industrial image processing. We offer a comprehensive range of sensors, cameras and image processing components as well as development support services and complete solutions for image processing applications. Our team currently consists of 50 associates and we are achieving sales of approximately € 30 million.

“Teaching machines to see” is what drives us. For us, image processing is not just a technical discipline, but a fascination, the future and our mission all at the same time. Our 30 years of experience add up to 30 years of participation in the evolution of a revolutionary new technology. The spirit of innovation and development of our early days has remained at the heart of our company. It defines our three areas of business:

Imaging Products – Components for image processing

Through our close and long-term partnerships with numerous highly regarded manufacturers, we’re able to provide you with our wide, market-driven, efficient, tried and tested range of different types of image sensors, cameras, optics, lighting, cables and image acquisition components.

Engineering Support – Development support for cameras and software

Our vast knowledge allows us to work with your engineering group on multiple levels including development support, prototype development, software integration, algorithms and design support as well as reducing the development time and maximizing the flexibility and scalability of image processing components. FRAMOS provides ideal support in all these areas from the decision-making process right up to the finished product.

Imaging Solutions – Customized image processing solutions

Whether automation, quality assurance, medical, security or transport, almost every field of application in different industrial sectors will be supported by image processing systems.
If you want to use an image processing system, we'll help you with the best combination of image processing components such as cameras, lenses, lighting, and the right software. Our team will also develop a finished system and programme the applications in the corresponding development and user environment.
With the integration, start-up and maintenance later on, we cover the entire value chain. Our know-how, combined with the ability to think outside the box, results in tailored image processing solutions.

As a complete product and service provider working with you from the product to the application, from development to support, from consultancy to global logistics, FRAMOS will also be enabling the imaging of tomorrow, defining trends on the market and serving you with the highest quality products and services. You can therefore focus on strengthening your competitive advantage - we'll take care of the rest and support you all the way.
