Natural Motion
SmartNAV was designed to complement the natural head motion you already perform when looking around. Moving your head less than a quarter inch easily maneuvers the cursor across your entire screen.

Virtual Keyboard
You can type on your computer screen with SmartNAV's virtual keyboard program.

Switch input
You can plug a click switch or a footswitch directly into the side of the SmartNAV. With the included Y Breakout Cable, you can plug in separate click switches for left and right clicking.

How it Works

SmartNAV uses an infra-red (IR) camera to track your head movements, more specifically the movement of a reflective material which most often is on the SmartNAV Hat. Other common methods include putting the dot on your forehead or glasses, or putting it on a microphone boom (i.e. the 'mike').

The movement of your head reflects IR light back to the SmartNAV, which uses this information to send instructions to your computer, moving your mouse cursor on the screen.

Naturalpoint also offers alternatives to the dot sticker, which you can read about in the accessories section (bottom of the page).

WHAT DO I WEAR?
Simply put on the SmartNAV Hat, or put a paper thin tiny reflective dot on the part of your body you'd like to control the cursor with (hats, microphone booms and glasses are the current favorites, but anywhere on your body will work).

WHERE DO I PUT THE SMARTNAV?
The SmartNAV usually sits on top of your monitor, facing you. But you can clip it to laptops or place it behind you. It can be placed anywhere as long as it can see whichever reflective accessory you have chosen to wear.

HOW MUCH DO I MOVE?
Less than an inch of head movement is more than enough to move the cursor across your entire screen. This is also adjustable in the software 'speed' settings. SmartNAV has a 30 degree Field Of View (FOV), and usually sits about 2 feet away from your head. This means you have at least a foot and a half of free 'head space' in which to move that minimal inch.

HOW DO I CLICK?
You can click with (redefinable) hotkeys on your keyboard, purchase a clicking accessory (ErgoClick or Savant Elite Footswitch), you can plug a switch into the SmartNAV device, or you can use the Dwell Clicking Software. With the Dwell Clicking software, you can click just by hovering the cursor in one spot for some small (and adjustable) amount of time.

In Technical Terms

Infrared light is emitted from the LEDs and is reflected back to the imager by a corner cube reflector (3M safety material). This reflected light is imaged by a CMOS sensor and the video signal is passed to the preprocessing electronics. The video signal is thresholded against a reference level and all passing data is sent to the USB microcontroller to send to the PC for object tracking. In order to increase the signal to noise ratio an IR filter that passes only 800nm and above is placed between the imager lens and the outside world.

The SmartNAV can image any IR source; typically this is reflective material or an active IR source such as an LED. A user may track many different objects by placing reflective dots or LEDs on the object. The Smart-Nav has a 30 degree field of view and anything being tracked must stay in that field of view.

What Do I Get in the Box?

The Shipping Box

The SmartNAV is delivered in a tough clear plastic clamshell which measures 10.5' tall by 8' wide and 3' deep. Looks great on the shelf - even after you buy the product, many keep the packaging (it can also be used as a safe way to transport the device).

All the items listed below are included inside this box. The SmartNAV device is actually sitting in a pop out window near the top of the box's paper insert. When the SmartNAV is taken out of the box the stand needs to be twisted around 180 degrees to sit on top of a monitor.

The SmartNAV Device

The brains behind the whole operation. The SmartNAV comes fully assembled.

It is important to note that the SmartNAV connects to your computer via USB cable, and NaturalPoint does not encourage the use of a USB Hub. The hardware of the SmartNAV EG and AT has been modified to allow switch inputs (i.e. switch-enabled), an added bonus over the SmartNAV Standard model.

Not sold separately.

Dots

Each sheet includes twenty 1/3 inch (7.5 mm) diameter dots and six 1/2 by 1/2 inch squares. When you order a SmartNAV system, one sheet is included in the box. When you order this accessory separately, two sheets are included.

Extra dots are useful for attaching to other items like glasses, hats, microphone booms or even your forehead. Our dots use a cloth backing (instead of a flimsy sticker backing) so they should last 6-12 months depending on use. Heavy users may want to stock up!

Rings

Our flexible rubber Rings fit easily on your finger, and have a reflective crown. The SmartNAV Ring lets you control your computer’s cursor without taking your hands off the keyboard.

When you slip on the Ring, the SmartNAV follows your finger, allowing you to perform all typical mouse functions by simply aiming your finger at any point on your monitor screen and clicking with your user defined Hot Keys. One size fits all, adjustable.

Raw Material

1 foot long by 1' wide strip of raw 3M reflective material can be fashioned into a variety of custom shapes to meet your individual needs.

You can create custom hats or headbands to use (instead of a dot) by simply cutting out the proper shape and sticking it to a headset or other objects. Wrapping the material around a small ball works well in many situations.

SmartNAV Hat

This stylish and functional flight-style hat removes the need for reflective targets. With built-in tracking surfaces on the brim and back, the SmartNAV Hat improves the ease-of-use and accuracy of your SmartNAV. Most people prefer to use this high quality hat instead of having to carry their reflective material around with them. Hats put the reflective material a couple of inches in front of your forehead, which accentuates the movements of your head.

The hat comes in black with light grey trim and tracking surfaces on both the front and the back. One size fits all, adjustable.

Monitor Mount

A rigid black plastic mount to secure your SmartNAV to any surface. (sold in pairs)

To Apply: place a Monitor Mount on your SmartNAV's metal base, remove cover from sticky area on bottom side of the mount, position SmartNAV where you want it to stay, and press down firmly on the mount. SmartNAV can be removed from the mount, and reinserted, but the mount will stay in the exact same place until removed.

1 Monitor Mount is included in the SmartNAV box, and you can purchase 2 at a time if you would like more.

Dimensions: 1.125' wide x 1' deep x 0.25' tall.

Virtual-Reality Peripheral Network
Developer(s)ReliaSolve
Written inC++, Python, Java
TypeVR Middleware
Websitegithub.com/vrpn/vrpn/wiki

VRPN (Virtual-Reality Peripheral Network) is a device-independent, network-based interface for accessing virtual reality peripherals in VR applications. It was originally designed and implemented by Russell M. Taylor II at the Department of Computer Science of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. VRPN was maintained and supported by Sensics[1] while it was business. It is currently maintained by ReliaSolve and developed in collaboration with a productive community of contributors. It is described more fully at vrpn.org and in VRPN-VRST.[2]

The purpose of VRPN is to provide a unified interface to input devices, like motion trackers or joystick controllers. It also provides the following:

  • Time-stamping of data
  • Multiple simultaneous access to peripheral devices
  • Automatic re-connection of failed servers
  • Storage and playback of sessions

The VRPN system consists of programming interfaces for both the client application and the hardware drivers and a server application that communicates with the hardware devices. The client interfaces are written in C++ but has been wrapped in C#, Python and Java.

Drivers Naturalpoint Others Wanted

A typical application of VRPN is to encode and send 6DoFmotion capture data through the network in real time.

Networking[edit]

A VRPN client can establish a connection with a VRPN server (the device providing the data) in two ways: either over TCP (reliable, but less efficient), or over UDP (unreliable, but lower-latency and more efficient). The 'unreliable' mode is generally preferred when the latency is critical.

The 'unreliable' connection initialization sequence makes use of both the TCP and UDP protocols. It works as follows:[3]

  1. the client opens a TCP socket for listening on an arbitrary port;
  2. the client sends the port number of this socket, along with its own machine name, in a UDP datagram directed to a well known port of the VRPN server (the default is 3883);
  3. the server opens a TCP connection with the client, to the port number communicated at step 2;
  4. if the TCP connection is established, each device tells to the other the supported VRPN version;
  5. if the versions are not compatible, the connection is dropped;
  6. otherwise, each device begins to listen on a new UDP port (different from those used before) and sends the port number to the other device, by using the previously created TCP connection;
  7. from now on, all the data is sent over the two UDP ports opened at step 6.

The advantages of this approach are: fast connection time and fast failure detection during connection.

However, the 'unreliable' connection initialization protocol does not honor the strict layering protocol design principle, as the application-level VRPN payload leaks information about lower levels in the network stack, namely the machine names and TCP/UDP port numbers. Because of this design choice, it is impossible to establish a VRPN connection between two devices connected through a NAT: the router would need to translate not only the layer-3 information in the packet headers, but also the references to IP addresses and port numbers inside the VRPN payload.

To deal with this problem, VRPN offers[4] a second 'reliable', TCP-only connection initialization mode, which is a standard TCP server-client interaction: the VRPN server listens on a well-known TCP port and the client initiates a connection. In this mode, all the data is sent on the same TCP connection, and no UDP communication is required.
