Serial Driver for the Aurora Magnetic Tracker

Student Project (SEP), Zhen Zhang

Goal of this student project is writing a serial driver for the Aurora magnetic tracker. This is a joint project with the Workgroup for Minimally Invasive Therapy and Intervention (MITI) of the Klinikum Rechts der Isar.

The Aurora tracker can be used to track medical instruments like endocsopes inside a patients body during intervention. The tracker is connected with a serial port to the graphic workstation. A simple driver needs to be developed to use the information for visualization.


  • Implementation language: C/C++
