Hi Kongdebai,

Are you referring to the information pertaining to what region the HTC Vive kit was originally sold in or the actual positional tracking data used to determine where the headset is in 3D space?

Thanks,

If your base station has a Fault 02/03 error or a red light or both, the ONLY solution is to contact our support on vive.com and set up an RMA. There is no user fix for this issue.

Hey Minzhe / @kongdebai, I reached out to our dev relations team on this.

 

Basically, you can get positional tracking data from whatever game engine or platform you're coding with, or alternatively, when coding within OpenVR (which is more 'raw').

 

For example in Unity - which is a free download - you can see the tracking data for x, y, z positions of the headset, and its rotation.

 

Does that help?
