The idea is to take the Tundra Labs HDK and create a controller that works in virtual reality (with the HTC VIVE/ valve index).
Items needed for project :
- HTC VIVE
- SteamVR Tracking HDK
- TundraLabs Reference design HDK
- Arduino Zero
- PS4 Controller
- Tracking item (3d printed model that fits the PS4 Controller)
The idea is take the ps4 controller and connect it to the Arduino zero. The Arduino zero takes inputs and sends them to the Tundra Labs HDK over spi. The Tundra Labs HDK takes that info and sends it to the computer. In addition the Tundra Labs HDK comes with optical sensors which will be glued onto the controller to enable tracking in virtual reality.
The SteamVR Tracking HDK will be used to generate files for the tracking. The sensors will need to be tested, then using the file generated from the SteamVR HDK, sensors will be placed in specific places on the controller. The SteamVR Tracking HDK - IMU calibration will be used to calibration motion. Then the sensor calibration will be done. all this data will need to be stored on a "Json" file which will be uploaded and stored on the Tundra Labs HDK.
Will continue updating as project continues.
