I'm using JoonBin's amazing whiteboard software

One of the measures is the 'tracking utilisation'
What is this?
I'm assuming: the hogher the value I get for this, the better the tracking?

I've got my Wiimot 2.5m high up and I'm getting 5% tracking utilisation
BUT: in terms of tracking... it still seems to be really good

Assuming the bigger the number for this, the better: how do I get near the maximum?

Its the relative amount of the total available camera area that is calibrated to track IR-sources.

i.e: If the potential tracking area is 1m x 1m = 1m2 (the total surface area on the board the IR-Camera can see) and my projected image is 0.5m x 0.5m = 0.25m2 (after calibration the Tracking Ultization will be 25%.

This is used to quantify the wiimote location the close to 100% the better. Anything over 50% is optimal, as very difficult to get any higher.
