vive-diy-position-sensor - Code & schematics for position tracking sensor using HTC Vive's Lighthouse system and a Teensy board

  •        69

Lighthouse position tracking system consists of:   – two stationary infrared-emitting base stations (we'll use existing HTC Vive setup),   – IR receiving sensor and processing module (this is what we'll create).The base stations are usually placed high in the room corners and "overlook" the room. Each station has an IR LED array and two rotating laser planes, horizontal and vertical. Each cycle, after LED array flash (sync pulse), laser planes sweep the room horizontally/vertically with constant rotation speed. This means that the time between the sync pulse and the laser plane "touching" sensor is proportional to horizontal/vertical angle from base station's center direction. Using this timing information, we can calculate 3d lines from each base station to sensor, the crossing of which yields 3d coordinates of our sensor (see calculation details). Great thing about this approach is that it doesn't depend on light intensity and can be made very precise with cheap hardware.

Chrome DevTools extension that enables users and developers to run WebVR 1.0 content without having a supported HMD headset or even a compatible browser/platform. It currently emulates an HTC Vive. It can also help develop even if one owns an HMD, by making repetitive actions that require putting the HMD on and off easier to check through the DevTools panel.

libwlocate


libwlocate is a shared library that can be used for location-based services. It checks for WLAN-networks that are available near to a user and retrieves the current geographic position out of them. Thus no GPS is needed for positioning. This WLAN-based geolocation happens without using any of the commercial services that do the same but track the users position and data. libwlocate instead bases on the free OpenWLANMap project.

react-native-overlay - An <Overlay /> component that brings content inside to the front of the view regardless of its current position in the component tree


An <Overlay /> component that brings content inside to the front of the view regardless of its current position in the component tree. This was extracted from react-native-modal because a modal is not the only time that you want to bring something to the front of the screen. Ideally, no. This should probably only be used as a last resort. You can usually accomplish what you need to by just absolute positioning an view at the bottom of your root component.

Sprite3D.js makes it easy to manipulate HTML elements in 3D space through the use of CSS 3D transforms. It allows to control the position, rotation and scale of the element using simple, chainable methods. A Sprite3D object IS an HTMLElement, so you can freely use native browser events and properties, and control their appearance through CSS directives.When creating a Sprite3D element, you can specify an ID or class, or even provide an existing HTML element that will be 'enhanced'. Most of its added methods can then be used as getter or setter depending of the number of arguments.
