Control robot with Virtual Reality headset


Learn how to control your robot with a virtual reality headset in the synthiam software platform

Step 1

This tutorial video will demonstrate how to use Virtual Reality with your robot to see what the robot sees, and control servos by moving your head. The associated robot skill plugin supports all virtual reality headsets through Steam VR (OpenVR), Google Play and iOS, including Google Cardboard, Oculus, Windows Mixed Reality and HTC Vive. The plugin does two things, it allows you to see what the robot sees and control the servos with the Pitch and Yaw of the headset. This means when you move your head, the robot head can move as well, mimicking your movement.

Do you have an app for a IPHONE?



Do you have an app for a IPHONE?
Since the Android phone just needs WiFi and does not need cellular service, you can probably pick up a cheap used one.  I would get one locally where you can set it up in front of the owner or from someone you know and trust because if the owner doesn't de-register from their account, you will not be able to log onto Google Play services from it even if you factory reset.  Many sellers either don't know this, or if they are selling a stolen device, they will ghost you when you try to get their credentials to remove them from the phone.
