I've explored the forums for headset info but the answers are not solid and seem outdated.
Is there an up-to-date list of which headsets are compatible with the EZB and EZ Builder? Thanks
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
I can't tell whether the 1200VR glasses are compatible from this comment. I also chased some instructions down a rabbit hole to find a list of compatible glasses but the information simply looped without conclusion.
did you took the Red or the Blue pill ?
This is my honest opinion, i got curious and i went to vuzix website, i spent some time (wasted) to try to find old iWear devices (920VR, 1200VR).
I could not find any information, then i tried to look for drivers, then for a support forum. I also checked the SDK.
Only smoke... SDK version is 3.6, but no iWearDrv.dll 32 bit version (needed for ARC).
So if you are a user looking for drivers, or support you are doomed. I can't trust their website, i would stay way.
I would remove ARC builtin support, and move the functionality to an external plugin to avoid inquiries.
The only relevant information is the head tracking (X, Y) without any further development you can control two servos.
There are cheaper versions to obtain head tracking. One cheap idea attaching an android phone (with gyro/acc) to a headphone, then broadcast the sensor data.
I'm joking but the information obtained is the same.
What kind of integration/interaction you have in mind ?
I simply want:
1. The vision from the EZB camera to come through in two halves into the eyewear until a stereoscopic ezb camera is released
2. Enable x,y control of the neck with the accelerometer
3. It would be great if the phone's mic and headphones worked so I could speak as the robot and listen as the robot.
The driver worked and recognized my glasses perfectly. One challenge is the vuzix controller seems to fire off Pitch (head up and down) and Roll (head tilt left or right) and not yaw (Look left and right). Problem is JD doesn't have a roll servo only a Pitch and Yaw servo. Other than that is great and will be perfect for my telepresence bot.
I have a fatshark dominator 3 that can support 3 Axis head tracking as well. These are fairly common with drone pilots so maybe a good HMD to support but does not seem to be a lot of info documented on interfacing with the Trinity module. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pKzOfopCDY
