VRPN (FAQ)

1. What VRPN devices are available?
We support many, but not all, VRPN servers inside DART's xtra. All of the 3D/6D trackers, and most things that generate buttons and analogs, are supported. We don't currently support Phantom's and some other devices that use different interfaces.

2. Can I use VRPN to talk to external programs written in other languages like C, C++ or Java?
Yes, in general you can. VRPN is pretty finicky if you try to have different version communicate, so if you have trouble please contact us. But, you should be able to use VRPN shared memory objects and trackers to share data.
