vrpn - Virtual Reality Peripheral Network (executables)
||Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus)
||NeuroDebian Main amd64
The Virtual-Reality Peripheral Network (VRPN) is a set of classes within a
library and a set of servers that are designed to implement a
network-transparent interface between application programs and the set of
physical devices (tracker, etc.) used in a virtual-reality (VR) system. The
idea is to have a PC or other host at each VR station that controls the
peripherals (tracker, button device, haptic device, analog inputs, sound,
etc). VRPN provides connections between the application and all of the
devices using the appropriate class-of-service for each type of device
sharing this link. The application remains unaware of the network topology.
Note that it is possible to use VRPN with devices that are directly
connected to the machine that the application is running on, either using
separate control programs or running all as a single program.
This package contains the executables like the VRPN server.
