Vive Tracker Device ID


Vive Tracker Device ID

I am working on a unity project, were i am using 3 vive trackers for 3 different physical objects which is mounted on them permanently. Since the device ID changes everytime i restart SteamVR, it mess up the setup like different tracker in different object. How can i get unique ID of tracker and set them for the objects permanently. 


Thanks in advance

The Vive Input Utility is better designed to interface with the tracker than the standard SteamVR plugin. Typically, you'd assign the objects based on the order you turn them on rather than a unique identifier; this tends to be very reliable.
