Intersense Script


I am using using an Intersense tracker to provide head tracking data to Vizard. Currently, the tracker and Vizard interface works correctly once the tracker has been configured. Unfortunately, in order to configure the tracker I need to send a script to the tracker before it will send back correct data. I can do this manually before I run Vizard, but I am wondering if there is a way to automatically send a configuration script to the tracker using Vizard.

Also, how do you figure out what the different commands are for your tracker in the sensor.command() function?

Thanks for your help!

The documentation for the Intersense plugin describes all the available commands (

The Intersense driver will automatically load a configuration file when a tracker connection is first opened. Here is the description from the InterSense API documention:
When a tracker is first opened, library automatically looks for a configuration file in current directory of the application. File name convention is isenseX.ini where X is a number, starting at 1, identifying one tracking system in the order of initialization.
The InterSense API has a function to send a configuration file to a tracker and another function to send a script to a tracker. I'm not sure what the difference between their configuration file and script is. Does the configuration file support your needs?
