Motion Tracking Above and Below Water Dataset


This data set includes one trial of above and under water motion tracking measurements from a Qualysis motion tracking system. The Qualisys native .qtm file can be opened by the Qualisys Track Manager software. Data from this file has been exported to a tab separated value (.tsv) file which is a generic ASCII file format that can be read by a text editor, MATLAB, Excel, etc... Also exported is a native MATLAB formatted file (.mat) which can be loaded directly into MATLAB. The trial is from a three body wave energy converter device, using the underwater system for the central nacelle data, and above water system for the fore and aft floats.
