Putting on your trackers

Put trackers on according to the pictures. These are the recommended positions, you can use any comfortable position for you, but there are a few rules:


  1. You should set Tracker role to the proper role according to body part you put your tracker on. This includes tracker extensions. Use pictures to reference role names and their recommended mounting points.
  2. You should set Tracker direction according to your mounting direction. You can only mount trackers facing forward, left, backwards, or right. You can not mount trackers facing other directions (yet). When you mount it, make sure they sit tight, and face as much in this direction as possible when you’re standing straight. I.e. “Forward” should face the same way your HMD is facing when you look forward while standing!
  3. You can mount trackers tiled forward/backward or on the side, this will not mess up the tracking.
  4. You can mount trackers in any place on the designated body part you find comfortable, however the less the area is deformed by muscular movement the better the tracking will be. Make sure the tracker moves when you bend the joint to register movement. Pay special attention to the waist tracker, there are many places where you can mount it and it won’t register you bending over. Mount it above your hip, around the level of your belly button.



Alternative mounting points

Recommended tracker positions are:

  • Waist: on the side above waist or in the centre of the waist depending on your build (around the level of your belly button).
  • Chest: facing forward middle of the chest.
  • Hip: facing forward on your pelvis at belt level
  • Upper leg: right above the knee or higher up the thigh depending on your build.
  • Lower leg: on the ankle.
  • Foot: on top of the foot. Trackers ‘up’ facing toward the ankle, and ‘front’ facing the ceiling.

You can also put the main tracker on the chest, and tracker extension on the waist. It may be more comfortable and stable this way, since your hand won’t bump into waist tracker.
