Intersense won't work with a USB joystick


We recently installed a new computer with Vizard 2.53, and now I am unable to use both my USB joystick (a Logitech WingMan rumblepad) and the orientation sensor (an InertiaCube2). In fact Vizard crashes when I add the line: viz.add('intersense.dls'). However, the USB mouse and keyboard do not have any effect.

There was an earlier thread that commented on this problem, but it didn't give any solution, and since this was not a problem before with essentially the same hardware and software, I was hoping someone knows what is going wrong here.

From all I know, this is due to a new version of the Intersense driver after they came out with their USB devices, and is pretty much more or less an Intersense bug.

However, there is a workaround that works very well which is to specify the port the Intersense is connected to (you can look it up under windows device manager under com-ports ).

What you do in Vizard is to specify the exact port the InertiaCube is connected to by placing the command

PORT_INTERSENSE = 3 #in case the InertiaCube is connected to COM port 3

right in the line in front of initiallizing the Intersense device

orientation = viz.add('intersense.dls')

so the total code for adding an InertiaCube2 then reads as

PORT_INTERSENSE = 3 #in case the InertiaCube is connected to COM port 3
orientation = viz.add('intersense.dls')
