View Full Version : How to navigate intuitively with Vive?

Hey all,

I am using Vizard with an HTC Vive and 2 wands. Right now, I have a script that uses the arrow keys to navigate by using vizact.move(to coords). However, this method leaves movement in a zigzag motion, and forward, backward etc.. are independent of the user, meaning even if the user is facing to the east, forward moves them north instead of where they are facing. How can I implement movement with either the keyboard or the wands that is relative to the user's orientation?

Take a look at the Vive preset option in vizconnect. That sets up a transport using signals from the right hand controller. The transport movements are relative to the head tracker's orientation. After adding the preset in vizconnect, you can go to the advanced configuration menu to customize it.
