Description
"Software developed at the Cockrell School of Engineering and a low-cost GPS antenna, students in professor Todd Humphreys' Radionavigation Lab demonstrate position tracking of a virtual reality headset to centimeter accuracy, in real time." These inventors describe it as the "key to untethered virtual reality" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG4Q2kq8DAE "“Imagine games where, rather than sit in front of a monitor and play, you are in your backyard actually running around with other players,” said Todd Humphreys, assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and lead researcher. “To be able to do this type of outdoor, multiplayer virtual reality game, you need highly accurate position and orientation that is tied to a global reference frame.” http://news.utexas.edu/2015/05/05/texas-engineers-develop-centimeter-accurate-gps-system
