Detailed Description

Interface for all Tracking Devices.

Documentation Defines the methods that are common for all tracking devices.

Definition at line 35 of file mitkTrackingDevice.h.

Member Enumeration Documentation

◆ RotationMode

Defines the rotation modes of this tracking device which results in different representations of quaternions.

  • Standard: normal representation, rawdata from the device is not changed (DEFAULT)
  • Transposed: the rotation is stored transposed, which is (by mistake!) expected by some older MITK classes due to an ambigious method naming in VNL.

CAUTION: The rotation mode can only be changed for backward compatibility of old WRONG code. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE ROTATION MODE UNLESS YOU ARE KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

use SetRotationMode to change the mode.

Member Function Documentation

◆ AddSingleToolIsAvailable()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::AddSingleToolIsAvailable ( )
virtual
Returns
Returns true if it is possible to add a single tool. Default return is true.

Reimplemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice.

◆ AutoDetectTools()

virtual mitk::NavigationToolStorage::Pointer mitk::TrackingDevice::AutoDetectTools ( )
virtual

Autodetects tools from this device and returns them as a navigation tool storage.

Returns
Returns the detected tools. Returns an empty storage if no tools are present or if detection is not possible

Reimplemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, and mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice.

◆ AutoDetectToolsAvailable()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::AutoDetectToolsAvailable ( )
virtual
Returns
Returns true if this device can autodetects its tools.

Reimplemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, and mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice.

◆ CloseConnection()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::CloseConnection ( )
pure virtual

Closes the connection to the device.

This may only be called if there is currently a connection to the device, but tracking is not running (e.g. object is in Ready state)Closes the connection with the device

Implemented in mitk::OptitrackTrackingDevice, mitk::NDITrackingDevice, mitk::VirtualTrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, mitk::ClaronTrackingDevice, mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice, and mitk::MicroBirdTrackingDevice.

◆ GetData()

TrackingDeviceData mitk::TrackingDevice::GetData ( ) const

return device data

◆ GetRotationMode()

virtual RotationMode mitk::TrackingDevice::GetRotationMode ( ) const
virtual
Returns
Returns the rotation mode of this class. See documentation of enum RotationMode for details on the different modes.

◆ GetState()

TrackingDeviceState mitk::TrackingDevice::GetState ( ) const

return current object state (Setup, Ready or Tracking)

◆ GetTool()

virtual TrackingTool* mitk::TrackingDevice::GetTool ( unsigned int  toolNumber) const
pure virtual

◆ GetToolByName()

virtual mitk::TrackingTool* mitk::TrackingDevice::GetToolByName ( std::string  name) const
virtual

Returns the tool with the given tool name.

Note: subclasses can and should implement optimized versions of this method

Returns
the given tool or nullptr if no tool with that name exists

Reimplemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice.

◆ GetToolCount()

virtual unsigned int mitk::TrackingDevice::GetToolCount ( ) const
pure virtual

◆ GetTrackingDeviceName()

std::string mitk::TrackingDevice::GetTrackingDeviceName ( )

Convenient Method to get the Name of the Tracking Device. This is identical with GetData().Line and can be used to compare with TrackingDeviceTypeInformation::GetTrackingDeviceName() to check if you have a specific device.

◆ GetType()

TrackingDeviceType mitk::TrackingDevice::GetType ( ) const

Deprecated! Use the more specific getData or GetTrackingDeviceName instead. return device type identifier.

◆ IsDeviceInstalled()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::IsDeviceInstalled ( )
virtual
Returns
Returns true if the device is installed on this system an can be used. Installed means activated in MITK, in some cases this means the MITK installation / build has to know the installation path of the device libraries on this system. This path is usually given as cmake variable during the build configuration in devellopers mode. If the device should be available for end users with an installer the libraries can be included into the installer or the installer has to be adapted such that it asks for the path. Returns fals if the device is not installed. It cannot be used on this build in this case.

Note that some tracking systems communicate via a standard interface (e.g., serial port) and don't need any library or installation. These devices are always "installed".

Reimplemented in mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice, mitk::OptitrackTrackingDevice, and mitk::ClaronTrackingDevice.

◆ mitkClassMacroItkParent()

mitk::TrackingDevice::mitkClassMacroItkParent ( TrackingDevice  ,
itk::Object   
)

◆ OpenConnection()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::OpenConnection ( )
pure virtual

Opens a connection to the device.

This may only be called if there is currently no connection to the device. If OpenConnection() is successful, the object will change from Setup state to Ready state

Implemented in mitk::OptitrackTrackingDevice, mitk::NDITrackingDevice, mitk::VirtualTrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, mitk::ClaronTrackingDevice, mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice, and mitk::MicroBirdTrackingDevice.

◆ SetData()

void mitk::TrackingDevice::SetData ( TrackingDeviceData  data)

set device type

◆ SetRotationMode()

virtual void mitk::TrackingDevice::SetRotationMode ( RotationMode  r)
virtual

Sets the rotation mode of this class. See documentation of enum RotationMode for details on the different modes. This method has to be implemented in a deriving class to become functional / if different rotation modes should be supported. CAUTION: The rotation mode can only be changed for backward compatibility of old WRONG code. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE ROTATION MODE UNLESS YOU ARE KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

Reimplemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice.

◆ SetState()

void mitk::TrackingDevice::SetState ( TrackingDeviceState  state)
protected

change object state

◆ SetType()

void mitk::TrackingDevice::SetType ( TrackingDeviceType  type)

Deprecated! Use the more specific setDeviceData instead. set device type.

◆ StartTracking()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::StartTracking ( )
pure virtual

start retrieving tracking data from the device.

This may only be called after the connection to the device has been established with a call to OpenConnection() (E.g. object is in Ready mode). This will change the object state from Ready to Tracking

Implemented in mitk::NDITrackingDevice, mitk::OptitrackTrackingDevice, mitk::MicroBirdTrackingDevice, mitk::VirtualTrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, mitk::ClaronTrackingDevice, and mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice.

◆ StopTracking()

virtual bool mitk::TrackingDevice::StopTracking ( )
virtual

stop retrieving tracking data from the device. stop retrieving tracking data from the device. This may only be called after StartTracking was called (e.g. the object is in Tracking mode). This will change the object state from Tracking to Ready.

Reimplemented in mitk::OptitrackTrackingDevice, mitk::MicroBirdTrackingDevice, mitk::VirtualTrackingDevice, mitk::OpenIGTLinkTrackingDevice, mitk::ClaronTrackingDevice, and mitk::PolhemusTrackingDevice.
