Controllers are a key part of the overall user experience, especially for Virtual Reality (VR) applications. VR controllers integrate with the VR/AR headset to capture natural hand gestures in order to manipulate objects in the virtual world, thus allowing the user to interact with the surrounding environment. Central to the functionality of these devices are the sensors that recognize the location and movement of the user relative to the images displayed on the headset and the real-time communications between these devices.
A VR controller must be light, autonomous and ensure comfortable handling.
ST provides the right products and ICs for this application area where long battery life, high accuracy sensing and wireless connectivity are the key element to capture and transmit user’s movements and actions in real time. Key products include Bluetooth and NFC connectivity solutions, motion, environmental and proximity sensors, power management, wireless charging, and low-power high performance microcontrollers.
Rich by its features-set, STM32CubeMX is changing its skin today to provide to the developers an improved access to the Pinout, Peripherals and Middlewares parameters to ease the configuration and optimized the project development time. This new look is also standardizing the User Interface of the different Software Development Tools of the STM32Cube ecosystem.
