ART and Sensics partner to enable new content and developer tools for high-end VR and AR tracking systems

Press release

December 2017 – Advanced Realtime Tracking (“ART”), provider of high-end optical tracking systems for VR and AR, today announced new content and development tools made possible through a partnership with Sensics, creator of the OSVR software platform and the leading provider of special-purpose VR solutions.
 

ART and Sensics collaborated to support the ART product line in the OSVR software platform.  This integration results in several benefits:

•   Application developers can integrate the ART trackers with Unity, Unreal Engine and a wide selection of other standard tools

•   It is easier than ever to integrate peripherals such as HMDs and controllers with ART devices.

•   Existing content that is available for the SteamVR and OSVR platforms can now be used with ART devices.


OSVR is a multi-OS middleware layer that connects applications and game engines to hundreds of virtual reality and augmented reality devices using a common universal interface. OSVR makes it easy to support new devices and quickly connect them to popular applications and development tools.

“The integration with Sensics and OSVR is a significant step in providing Unreal, Unity and many other options for developers and users”, says Andreas Werner, Sales Director of ART. “Our partnership with Sensics makes it easier than ever before to develop and port high-quality experiences with the ART products.”

“We are excited to add ART to the long list of devices supported by OSVR”, says Yuval Boger, CEO of Sensics. “We’ve been partnering with ART for over a decade and have come to admire their products. With this new integration, enterprise customers can mix and match devices in an exceptionally easy way”.
