We have developed a new tracking system of jaw movement. The system consists of two permanent NdFeB magnets and 32 elements of two-axial fluxgate sensor array. The two magnets are attached to head portion and front tooth. This system does not need any attachments of the head portion or mouth such as clutch or magnetic field sensor except magnets. The proposed system is applicable for five degrees of freedom. Position accuracy within 2 mm was achieved.
