I'm going on a road trip in a week and I want to know if it would hurt the tracking cameras by using my quest2 in the car. I would make sure the lenses don't get any outside light between putting them on and taking them off. Thanks for any advice!
Solved! Go to Solution.
The bright light might affect the tracking, but the biggest issue is the inertial tracking. The Quest uses accelerometers and gyroscopes to handle fast head and controller movement and gravity direction (to know which way is down). A moving car will mess with all of those, making it think the controllers and head are moving in the world, conflicting with the slower camera tracking.
(Not sure of the exact numbers for a Quest 2, but camera tracking is like 60 times per second, while inertial tracking is 500 times per second and fills in the gaps)
I haven't tried it myself though.
Same thing on a plane or boat.
