Does the Invoke Tracker work with VR?

Yes. The Invoke Tracker can provide wireless 6DOF object tracking for VR, AR and MR headsets that utilise inside-out tracking.

What differentiates the Invoke Tracker from the HTC Vive Tracker?

The HTC Vive's Lighthouse tracking system is effectively outside-in, so the available space to use the Vive Tracker is limited by the position of the base stations. The Invoke Tracker only requires sensors on the headset itself, so isn't limited to a predefined space.

Why not use passive tracking markers?

Given the constraints and dynamic challenges that come with portable headsets, we are taking advantage of the added accuracy and reliability possible with a dedicated hardware solution. This opens up other resources for a better overall user experience.

Do I need a 3D model of the object I want to track for it to work?

You don't need a model of the target object for the tracking to function properly, but you may want to have the geometry of the object available depending on the type of interaction you want. This works well when the Invoke Tracker is fixed or always attached to the same part of the object when in use.

I'm designing a product I'd like to track, but would rather not attach a seperate device. Can you help?

Our tracking technology is available for integration with other products under a licence. Get in touch at enquiries@invokeAR.com for more information.
