SPACE MOUSE

1

INTRODUCTION:
´

Space mouse is developed by the DLR institute of robotics and mechatronics. DLR-(German Aerospace research center) (german-Deutsches Zenturum far Luft-und Raumfahrt). The high sales price of about $8,000 per unit

´

2

PRINCIPLE:
´

The basic principle behind its construction is mechatronics engineering and the multisensory concept. Measuring system is drift-free and not subject to aging effects. Movements were measured by electromagnetic or ultrasonic.

SPACE MOUSE:
´

Space Mouse is a professional 3D controller manipulating objects in a 3D environment. It has different modes of operation in which it can also be used as a two-dimensional mouse. It can control 3D camera angels and positions for viewing the objects. Enables the user to intuitively zoom, pan and rotate models.

DIMENSIONS (LxWxH) 6.50" x 4.41" x 1.57" (165 x 112 x 40mm) WARRANTY 36 Months

FEATURES:
´ ´

Ease of use of manipulating objects in 3D applications. Nine programmable buttons to customize users preference for motion control. Adjust sensitivity and motion control to the users preference. Small form factor(specifies physical dimensions of major system components) frees up the desk space. Natural hand position (resting on table) eliminates fatigue.

ADVANTAGES:
´

Drawing times is reduced by 20%-30% . Works without an additional power supply. Adapted for a wide range of tasks including  mechanical design,  real time video animation  visual simulation.

FUTURE SCOPE:
´

ROTEX (global leader in screening technology engg. And manufacturing leading edge equipment)is the only well known virtual environment. Machine instruction allowance. To develop virtual environment using space mouse.

CONCLUSION:
we believe there is no other man- machine interface technology comparable to Magellan in its simplicity and yet high precision. It is used for 3D manipulations in 6 dof, but at the same time may function as a conventional 2D mouse.
