SteamVR Tracking 2.0 Set For CES 2018 Demo

With CES 2018 well underway, Valve is getting ready to show off SteamVR tracking 2.0.

CES 2018 attendees will be able to see SteamVR tracking for the first time this week, in the HTC Vive booth. The SteamVR 2.0 update will employ new sensor technology, they will allow for the ability to link up to four base stations in a single space, along with an increase in the tracking range, covering areas up to 10×10 metres.

The new tracking technology is expected to ship with commercial devices later this year, which allow 2.0 base stations to be smaller, and more efficient. SteamVR Tracking was first introduced with the HTC Vice, since then, over 1000 licensees have signed up, all incorporating SteamVR tracking technology into their VR systems and devices.

It will be interesting to see the direction PC based VR goes in 2018.
