Post Headset Coordinates and Euler angles (HTC Vive)


We are a group of Bachelor-level Mechanical Engineering students and we want to use position data out of the headset of the HTC Vive. We are building a virtual driving simulation in a program called Prescan connected to the control program Simulink. We want to use the HTC Vive to show the road environment, for this we need to export the position data from the HTC Vive to Simulink. Our first step is collecting this position data real-time. Then we need to send it to Simulink in some way.

We already have this piece of code (that we partly found here), we started out with using the controllers to get this position data (because we didn't know the name of the headset):

import viz
import vizact
import vizshape
import steamvr
import vizconnect

rightController = steamvr.getControllerList()[0]
leftController = steamvr.getControllerList()[1]

def printData():
print 'pos right:',rightController.getPosition()
print 'pos left :',leftController.getPosition()


--> where can we find this position data and how can we import this to Simulink?
