NodeSixense

Description:

A NodeJS addon/port of the Sixense SDK for "six-degrees-of-freedom" controllers, such as the Razer Hydra™.

Restrictions:

  1. Linux based OS
  2. Currently only one sixense base is supported.

Prerequisite:

  1. node-gyp installed globally: npm install -g node-gyp

Documentation:

Refer to the 'Sixense_SDK_Reference.pdf' and 'Sixense_SDK_Overview.pdf' available from Sixense's website for instructions on how to utilize the available SDK methods. All the Sixense SDK methods work as described.

There are a few additional methods meant to make working with the module easier in JavaScript:

sixenseInit() and sixenseSetActiveBase(0) should be called before accessing any of the following mechanics. Once finished with these mechanics sixenseExit() should be called.

sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsync:

An asynchronous version of sixenseGetAllNewestData. This method accepts a callback that should accept error and allData parameters. The callback will be called every ~16.6ms (the refresh rate of the SixenseSDK). Once this method is invoked, you must call sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsyncStop in order to stop the module from executing the callback sent to sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsync.

sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsyncStop:

This method is used to stop the execution of the callback sent sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsync. If sixenseGetAllNewestDataAsync hasn't been called, this method doesn't do anything.

Events:

node-sixense is an EventEmitter from the NodeJS events module. All listeners must be removed before exiting your application. All event callbacks should accept a data parameter (the data listened for) and a metaData parameter (metaData about the data provided). All object level events will be emitted every ~16.6ms. All property level events will be emitted when that property changes.
Here is a list of the events that can be listened for:

  • controller:[index] - (i.e. - controller:0) emits all data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:position - emits all position data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:position:x - emits the x-axis position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:position:y - emits the y-axis position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:position:z - emits the z-axis position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix - emits all rotationMatrix data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:x - emits all rotationMatrix x-axis data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix❌x - emits all rotationMatrix x-axis x position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix❌y - emits all rotationMatrix x-axis y position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix❌z - emits all rotationMatrix x-axis z position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:y - emits all rotationMatrix y-axis data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:y:x - emits all rotationMatrix y-axis x position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:y:y - emits all rotationMatrix y-axis y position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:y:z - emits all rotationMatrix y-axis z position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:z - emits all rotationMatrix z-axis data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:z:x - emits all rotationMatrix z-axis x position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:z:y - emits all rotationMatrix z-axis y position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationMatrix:z:z - emits all rotationMatrix z-axis z position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationQuaternion - emits all rotationQuaternion data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationQuaternion:x - emits all rotationQuaternion x-axis associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationQuaternion:y - emits all rotationQuaternion y-axis associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationQuaternion:z - emits all rotationQuaternion z-axis associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:rotationQuaternion:w - emits all rotationQuaternion unit vector associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:joystick - emits all joystick data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]🕹x - emits joystick x-axis position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]🕹y - emits joystick y-axis position associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:trigger - emits all trigger state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons - emits all button data associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:button1 - emits button 1 state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:button2 - emits button 2 state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:button3 - emits button 3 state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:button4 - emits button 4 state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:start - emits start button state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:bumper - emits bumper button state associated with the requested controller.
  • controller:[index]:buttons:joystick - emits joystick button state associated with the requested controller.
