In this paper, we develop a novel, real-time optical tracking system that can track a head-mounted display within a multicamera environment. To this end, we propose a fast algorithm which is based on a 3D prediction-correction approach. For the prediction, a constant velocity temporal model is used, and the correction is performed by Levenberg-Marquardt model tting over all markers and all views. The tracker achieves frame rates of 28Hz and can handle occlusion of markers.
