Abstract

The invention relates to a device and method for determining the position, orientation and/or deformation of an object whereby electromagnetic signals are emitted from one or more signal transmitters (A-G, M) arranged on an object. According to the invention, the signal transmitters (A-G, M) are controlled in such a way that the individual signals are different from each other. Said signals are projected onto at least one two-dimensional resolution position detector (PSD) and there they are converted into two-dimensional positioning co-ordinates. The position, orientation and/or deformation of an object is determined from the positioning co-ordinates.
