How many device could be used in one light house? [Including Headset a...

So I'm planning to work on a multiplayer room scale VR environment, It would require each person in the room to wear one headset, two vive wand, and 3 vive tracker. For this setup (6 sensor in total), i wonder how many people i would be able to put in one lighthouse setup?

Hello @libra34567,

There isn't a hard limitation on how many tracked devices you can run off a single lighthouse pair, it's entirely depedent on how many users you can safely fit into the tracked volume practically. Given the current specs of the lighthouses, things become too cluttered to be safe after 4-6 people depending on your setup. If you have an experience where people will be vigorously moving around, you'll want to decrease the number of users in that volume.

Currently SteamVR tracks up to 16 devices (including HMD, controllers and base stations- so that leaves 11 for trackers or 13 if not using the controllers)
