Does Vive Pro support open xr (and hand tracking)?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.

I need to track my hands using VIVE Pro in Unity's VR environment on my PC. The Unity versions I used were 2022.3.8 and 2020.3.20.

Here is the tutorial I followed: https://developer.vive.com/resources/openxr/openxr-pcvr/tutorials/unity/installing-vive-openxr-pc-vr-plugin/

I tried the sample scene, and it works well when I’m holding the controllers. But after I put the controllers on the table and raised my hands, nothing happened.

I also tried hand tracking sample scene from XR interaction toolkit following tutorials on Youtube. It all failed when I tried to use hand tracking.

I then re-checked this documentation overview of Vive Open XR https://developer.vive.com/resources/openxr/openxr-pcvr/overview/. It said VIVE Pro series is supported and uses  VIVE Console utility for PC VR.

I thought it might be the reason for my unsuccessful trying because I hadn't downloaded it before. So I downloaded it but launched it with"error 200: headset is not detected". I followed the solution here: https://www.vive.com/us/support/vive-pro2/category_howto/what-error-codes-and-messages-mean.html?error=200 .

·   Make sure the cables between the headset, link box, and computer are all properly connected, and then restart the headset.

·   Make sure to update the driver for your NVIDIA or AMD graphics card to the latest version.

·   Install the latest VIVE Console app update. Open VIVE Console from the desktop or Windows system tray, and then click  > About > CHECK UPDATE.

But there was no “CHECK UPDATE”.

Also, once I exit the VIVE Console for SteamVR, I can’t open it anymore. The only way to open it is to uninstall and redownload. I don’t know if it’s because there are any setting problems with my PC or maybe it’s because Vive Pro is not supported? All the results I got by using "vive console" and "vive pro" as keywords to search for any solution were about VIVE Pro 2. And the introduction in the link for downloading Vive Console seems to only support VIVE Pro 2.

I wonder is there any way to achieve hand tracking in unity with Vive pro?

I’ve tried all I could for several days, and I really need help.😭

The problem has been solved!

After all the complex trying, all I needed to do was wait for a while because it might take some time to detect my hands for the first time.

But the model of my hands is distorted in VR.

Maybe some external devices are necessary for better detection accuracy?
