In this page you can find the current release of the core of Chordata’s motion capture system.

Be aware that this is a beta release: the system is still not suitable for production use, and we are distributing a limited amount of prototypical units to some users. We’ll keep on testing and improving the system in the next months in order to make the first production release.

If you want to know more about our Beta-testing program, visit this page.

The sources for these files are also available at out  gitlab’s online repositories  so that anyone with a little bit of electronic and/or coding experience can go ahead an dive into the intricacies of our project.

If you are interested on building your chordata system from scratch you will find information in our wiki. If you have any doubt, please leave us your question at our forum.
