Real-time api for QTM

This is a javascript implementation of the real-time protocol provided by Qualisys Track Manager (QTM).

It is used to stream data from a computer running QTM. The real-time api can also be used to start and stop measurements, setting events and more.

Installation

  1. npm install qualisys-rt

Example

var Api = require('qualisys-rt').Api;
 
var api = new Api({ debug: true });
 
// Set up an event handler.
api.on('frame', function(data) {
    console.log('Received frame:'.green);
    console.log(data);
});
 
// Connect to host (defaults to 'localhost')
// and start streaming 3d data.
api.connect()
    .then(function() { return api.streamFrames({ components: ['3D'] }) })
    .catch(console.log)
;

Getting started

There is not much documentation yet so the best way to get started is by examining demo.js, which contains example code for common tasks.

  • api.discover(port)
  • api.frequency()
  • api.getCaptureC3d()
  • api.getCaptureQtm()
  • api.getCurrentFrame()
  • api.getParameters()
  • api.getState()
  • api.led(camera, mode, color)
  • api.load(filename, connect)
  • api.loadProject(path)
  • api.newMeasurement()
  • api.qtmVersion()
  • api.releaseControl()
  • api.reprocess()
  • api.save(filename, overwrite)
  • api.setParameters(params)
  • api.setQtmEvent(label)
  • api.startCapture()
  • api.stopCapture()
  • api.stopStreaming()
  • api.streamFrames(options)
  • api.takeControl(password)
  • api.trigger()

Additional api members

  • api.isConnected
  • api.isStreaming

Viewer 2D

You can view 2D data in your terminal by using the Viewer2D class.

api.connect(22223, 'localhost')
    .then(function() { return api.qtmVersion(); })
    .then(function() {
        var viewer = new Viewer2d(api);
        return viewer.render(1, { color: 'red' });
    })

For a reference of what's possible with the real-time protocol, refer to the QTM Real-time Server Protocol Documentation.
