Trackmate is an open source initiative to create an inexpensive, do-it-yourself tangible tracking system. Using the project's Tracker software, any computer can recognize tagged objects and their corresponding position, rotation, and color information when placed on the imaging surface.
Step 1: Gather the Materials
Step 2: Mount the Tags
1. Place a piece of double-stick tape on each object.
2. Mount a unique tag by aligning it to the center and pressing it to the object.
Step 3: Use Your Objects With Trackmate
Verify that everything is working properly by trying out the new tagged objects.
