use of tracker stand-alone without HMD on NUC

Hello All,

We are trying to use the tracker in a stand-alone mode. We are working on a multi user scenario and the idea is to hook up the tracker to a small pc and attach it to an object that is visible to all users.

Anyone can say something useful about this scenario? All documentation points to a direct link between dongle and pc, only Steam VR is not discovering the tracker without an HMD...

 

Thanks

Hi @michelbuchner

Using the Vive Tracker without the Vive HMD is not an offically supported use of the Tracker. The only place I can point you towards advice on this issue is this guide from Triad Semiconductor
