STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO CONTROL OPTROTRAK FROM MATLAB ON A 64-BIT WINDOWS PLATFORM
Updated 31 Mar 2016
To describe step-by-step how to control the Optotrak Certus (without the Optotrak Data Acquisition Unit (ODAU)) through Matlab without having to use the Optotrak software, a TCP/IP server, or Matlab’s Instrument Control Toolbox. This method makes use of C++ MEX files that call Optotrak’s API. These MEX files are called in Matlab.
Note: This method can be used with Optotrak 3020, however I have not tested this myself. There is also C++ code included for Optotrak with the ODAU but, again, I have not tested this myself.
• Host computer with 64-bit Windows OS (I am using Windows 7)
• Optrotrak camera & System Control Unit (SCU) connect to host computer via NDI’s USB module
• Optotrak API (purchase from NDI)
• Matlab 32-bit (I am using 2014)
• Visual Studio - Check your Matlab version to see which version of Visual Studio you require for that edition (I am using 2013)
