05729129 is referenced by 433 patents and cites 16 patents.

A system for locating objects in space, such as medical instruments within the body of a patient, based upon transmission of magnetic fields from coils in a fixed frame of reference to sensors on the object or visa-versa. The current supplied to the coils is adjusted to assure that the sensors receive fields within a preselected range of magnitudes regardless of the location of the object in space. This assures that the sensor operates within its optimum range, and permits use of compact transmitters and sensors.
