A wireless magnetic motion capture system using an LC resonant magnetic marker was developed and has been studied. The positional error of the system caused by mutual inductance between the exciting coil and the LC marker was examined. It has been found that the impedance change of the exciting coil due to a resonance of the LC marker perturbs the strength of the magnetic field which is used for marker excitation. The more a marker approaches the exciting coil, the larger it becomes. This fluctuation induces an error in the marker signal which is measured by the pickup coils and is necessary for positional calculation. Then, the compensatory process in consideration of the mutual inductance has been employed for positional calculation in order to improve the positional accuracy. From the compensation, the absolute positional accuracy is less than 2 mm within 140 mm of the pickup coil array.
