cameras get confused by many LEDs


I have noticed that the PPT trackers get confused by multiple LEDs (lights) when two lights get too close to each other or one gets right on top of another.
I have a total of three lights right now one for the HMD and one for each glove. If I put one hand on top of another there is a high probability that from that point the trackers think that the right hand is left and the left hand is right. I get a similar problem with a glove LED and a HMD LED when for example I try to adjust the HMD with one of my hands while the lights are being tracked.

Is it possible to maybe use different colors for the three LEDS (they are all bright blue right now) so that even if two or more cross paths trackers don't get confused? Can you program the trackers to distinguish colors or maybe brightness somehow.
