SteamVR Tracking > Laser Tracking User Projects

Here we’ll be highlighting user applications of our Light to Digital Tracking IC for SteamVR™ Tracking.

Lighthouse -

Base setup, two Lighthouses attached to a board, 0.600 meters center-to-center, aligned with a straight-edge.Drawer bumpers act as rubber feet to avoid rocking, large book provides extra mass. Standard deviation of angle measurements is the same as a single sensor held down on the counter. [See more…]

HTC vive lighthouse custom tracking -

In this log we are going to describe our system, which copies the functionality of HTC system, ie 3D tracking of custom sensors and pose estimation of objects. [See more…]

Positional Tracking for Mobile Virtual Reality - Utah State University

We designed and built a mobile virtual reality tracking system based on the Lighthouse tracking system developed by Valve. [See more…]

Alan Yates on the Impossible Task of Making Valve's VR Work - YouTube

I’ve built a Teensy 3 library to make it easy to add indoor position sensing to smaller projects. [See more…]

WIP: HTC Vive Lighthouse Beacon, #OpenVR Calibration, Ts3633 for Position Aware Devices

I asked around if a few local heroes were interested in the collection of parts and a possibility of boards to pull them all together. Just moments before pulling the trigger on the order, I find Triad Semi had already pulled all this together into a tiny package and breakout board. [See more…]

"Reverse Engineering" the HTC Vive - YouTube

No one had yet gotten the protocol for the watchman controller on the HTC Vive. We wanted to. This is a story about the two livestreams that found that protocol. Ben who helped us along and the protocol itself. [See more…]


HTC Vive Lighthouse tracked object -

I attended the VR hacakthon at the MIT Media Lab last weekend, which inspired me to finish off the open source hardware tracked object for the Valve/HTC Lighthouse system I’ve been working on since the release of the Triad Semiconductor TS3633 analog chip for Lighthouse tracking. [See more…]


Precision Indoor Positioning -

The Vive VR setup can do some amazingly precise room-scale tracking. In this project I’ll be documenting my work to build a small arduino based setup to read the lighthouse signals and determine its position. [See more…]
