How to improve Quest tracking capabilities with external lighthouse?

Hello
I would like to improve the tracking capabilities of Oculus Quest controllers with external lighthouse.
Is it possible to achieve this?

    No, the two systems cannot work together on any level

    They only work with the original Rift.
    If iTesla8 literally means lighthouse units then they only work with Vive, Index and Pimax (and some others), no Oculus product is compatible.
    If they actually mean Oculus external sensors, those only with with the original Rift as you say.

    When/if the Vive Cosmos gets made compatible with Sensors/Lighthouses it is going to be a pretty big draw in its favour. Especially if they drop the price (more than likely they won't).

    Thank you for answers, too bad there is no lighthouse compatible with Quest, would be good to improve tracking mostly when moving controllers on the back where Headset cameras can't see.

    I wish we could use sensors from cv1 for at least additional controllers tracking...

    There is a possibility to use Vive Controllers + Lighthouse + Oculus Quest if you would like. The Quest itself is not being tracked by the Lighthouse system, but instead both systems being used in tandem. So you would get the benefit of the Outside-In tracking of your controllers (specifically behind your head), with the viewing technology of Inside-Out from the quest. Look into

    weird, the second half of my post got cut off. Google "OpenVR Space Calibrator" and download on github. You can also check out "Vive trackers with Oculus Rift - automatic calibration" on youtube.
