Description

Over the past 3 years, I have been working on implementing positional tracking for Oculus Rift headsets. This talk will go through the Rift constellation system, and the differences between the older DK2/CV1 devices and the newer Rift S. It will touch on reverse engineering an unknown headset protocol, and what we understand of talking to Rift devices. Finally, I'll talk about progress on the algorithms for turning the information they provide into useful room-scale tracking, and the limitations of my current approach.
