Quick start

We’ve made a step-by-step tutorial to help you learn how to use the Antilatency tracking system and how to set up and configure your hardware.
Note, this tutorial only covers the most basic actions like software installation, tracking area assembly, and initial hardware setup. To learn more, please, read our HowTos. Links to some of them you will find below.
As an example, let’s take a Floor tracking area of 10m², an Alt, and a Socket(a Wired USB Socket or an HMD Radio Socket).

Install AntilatencyService

First, you need to install AntilatencyService. This utility allows you to choose the Environment scheme for your tracking area, set the Alt’s placement on the tracking object, and update the firmware or configure devices for special purposes.
You can download Antilatency Service here: AntilatencyService

Choose default Environment and Placement

Before using Antilatency hardware, you need to choose the default Environment and Placement.
You need to set the default setting just once when first launching AntilatencyService.
In the Environments tab, you can configure the tracking area parameters and choose the default Environment. In this tutorial, we will use the DevKit scheme.
Here you can find Environment examples for different tracking areas:
Environment examples for floor tracking areas
Environment examples for ceiling tracking areas
In our case, you don't need to set Placement at all. But if you track a specific object, for example, an HMD, you need to set the exact location of the tracker on the tracking object. You can do this in the Placements tab.

Assemble the tracking area

Open the Environments tab in AntilatencyService, and then open the desired tracking area in the editor. In our case, this is Devkit.
Follow these instructions to assemble a floor tracking area: How to set up the floor tracking area
Follow these instructions if you need to assemble a ceiling tracking area: How to set up the ceiling tracking area

Download Antilatency SDK

To use Antilatency hardware, you need the Antilatency SDK.
You can configure the SDK build with configurator and learn more about the latest updates in Releases.

Run Antilatency demo app

You can use the Antilatency demo app to test how our real-time tracking works. First, download the version of the application you need.
Connect the chosen Socket with the Alt to your device and launch the demo app. On the screen, you will see the position of the tracker. The current x, y, and z coordinates are shown under the tracker model.
