Exclamation Intersense-900 wand and headtracker

I am currently working on a project using Intersense 900. I am trying to use my wand and head tracker to navigate through virtual environment. I can use my mouse to navigate the virtual environment, but I can't use my wand and head tracker. I tried using the following code, but still can't navigate the displayed window with the wand and head tracker.


import viz
gallery = viz.add('gallery.ive')
view = viz.get(viz.MAIN_VIEWPOINT)
isense = viz.add ('intersense.dle')
tracker1 = viz.add('intersense.dle')
tracker2 = viz.add('intersense.dle')

station1 = isense.addTracker(port =3,station=1)
station2 = isense.addTracker(port =3,station=2)

Below is the result..

It seems like you've established the connection but need to apply the sensor data to the viewpoint. Take a look at the vizconnect tutorials for instructions on applying tracker data to the view and saving that to a configuration file.

Hello Jeff,
Thanks for your reply. I did all you ask me to do according to the link provided, and I also tried to add wand tracker to it with the code bellow, but it's gave me an error. Please I need your help again. How can I solve this error problem? ERROR: Failed to create extension sensor with intersense.dle

dojo = viz.addChild('dojo.osgb')
isense = viz.add ('intersense.dle')
tracker = isense.addTracker(port =3)
tracker1 = viz.add('intersense.dle')
#keyTracker = vizconnect.getTracker('keyboard').getNode3d()
tracker0Tracker = vizconnect.getTracker('tracker0').getNode3d()

import vizshape
axes = vizshape.addAxes(),axes),axes)

The errors are:

** ERROR: Failed to connect to Intersense tracker on port 3
** ERROR: Failed to create extension sensor with intersense.dle
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 11, in <module>
File "C:\Documents and Settings\STUDENT\Desktop\Displays and tracker\", line 14, in <module>
tracker0Tracker = vizconnect.getTracker('tracker0').getNode3d()

return getNode(classification=CLASS_TRACKER, name=name)

Make sure no other Intersense software is running that connects to the IS-900 when you run Vizard or Vizconnect. In your first post, the script output showed a connection to the tracker. Did anything change in the setup?
