This thesis describes tracking objects with low-level electric fields. A physical model is presented that describes the important interactions and the required mathematical inversions. Sophisticated hardware used to perform the measurements is described in detail. Finally, a discussion of the myriad applications for electric field sensing is described. The main application goal for this thesis is to make an efficient 3D mouse using electric field sensing technology.
