Accessing device specific controller models and data from native SDK?

Is there a way to locate the device specific controller model at runtime from the native SDK? Also is there any API call that can be made that defines what the system offset and orientation of the beam is relative to the controller model? For example on the Focus plus, the system beam does not eminate straight out of controller but is rotated down. In order to match the device our application is running on it would be nice to have access these things at runtime.

Hi @rbarker ,

 

We have plan to implement this, but sorry that it takes some time to launch. (say maybe Q3)

I'll update again once the schedule is confirmed.

Thanks.

Thanks, I look forward to these additions to the API. Until then, is there an API to detect what device the app is running out or should we be using the Java android.os.Build.MODEL to determine device type?

Hi @rbarker ,

 

You can check the Wave Runtime version by

WVR_GetWaveRuntimeVersion();

WVR_GetWaveSDKVersion();

 

android.os.Build.MODEL is for checking Android runtime. Please do not use this to check Wave Runtime.

Thanks.
