Setting up the base stations
Mount the base stations at the edge of the tracking area near power outlets.
If you're not able to mount the base stations using the mounting kit, you can attach them to tripods or place them on a stable surface, as long as it's high enough.
For details on using the mounting kit, visit VIVE Support.
Face each base station toward the center of the tracking area where you plan to set up the calibration board.
Collecting calibration data using the
Camera Calibration Tool for details.
Important: Remember to peel the protective film off the front panels of the base stations.
Connect the base stations to power one at a time. Make sure the first base station is detected by
Mars before connecting the second one.
Important: Only use the power cables and adapters included with the base stations.
Depending on the hardware version of your base stations, the LED indicators will be white or green.Note: If Mars doesn't automatically detect the base stations, press the channel button on the back with the channel changing pin to set the channel manually. You may need to set the channel manually for any additional base stations you connect.
The status icon on the Mars dashboard will turn blue about 10-15 seconds after setting the base station channel.
