Abstract: The electromagnetic tracking device showed a high accuracy and performed stable in both registration methods. Electromagnetic interference due to metallic instruments was significant but the extent of TRE was still acceptable in comparison to optical navigation devices. A benefit of EM tracking is the absence of line-of-sight hindrance. The test setting simulating OR conditions has proven suitable for further studies.
