Portia: a low cost, high accuracy method of three dimensional location tracking

submitted by: sbrowning

The aim of Portia is to develop a low cost, high accuracy method of three dimensional location tracking that can be constructed with commonly available parts, and set up with relative ease. Portia is intended to be used as an interface for a matrix of computer displays, named OptiPortal, also developed at CALIT2.
