Hi Experts;

I have been give the charter to work on an interesting project. The essence of the project is a need to identify the spot on a 10 x 30 screen where a laser is pointed.

I am looking at Infrared Projectors and non-Infrared Projectors working with Infrared cameras.

We have some specs with regard to wavelength and pulse, etc. but I don't need to go into that here.

I need to develop or purchase a piece of software to obtain/store/analyze the grid location where the laser "hits".

I know the technology is out there -- with Wii, and Laser simulators as well as paintball gaming tools -- but can't seem to find anything to do what I want it to do.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. If there is someone out there who has expertise in this area and who might like to be involved in this project, that may be a possibility as well.

Thanks for any help!!

I think with Camera tracking software you would be able to do this.
A commercial version of that could be: http://www.ssontech.com/synovu.htm

So far nothing I have looked at will help me. I have looked at Kinect for Windows sensor - and am not sure that will work either. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
