Can I track absolute position with the Smartgloves?

Relative Position

The Smartgloves gives you a relative position based on your starting position and your straight pose (calibration).

Absolute Position

As of right now, the Smartgloves doesn't support absolute tracking by themselves.

Absolute position can be achieved by using the Smartgloves together with the Smartsuit Pro and combining it with Valve's Lighthouse optical system and HTC Vive Trackers, which we offer under the "Virtual Production Kit" product on our webshop.

The tracker data will be used to define the absolute root position of the actor(s) wearing the Smartsuit Pro and Smartgloves, but can also be used to track props and various objects (like a virtual camera) in the scene as well, all this directly in Studio. You can learn more about this here.
