VRPN in panda

We are very interesting in using panda, in particular the VRPN support. Unfortunately, to that end we have been quite unsuccessful. Is there anyone who can give some tips, hints, sample code, docu to this theme? The manual lists something involving “SimpleTracking” which doesn’t exist in the public domain as far as I can see. As I look at the pictures to the right of my screen I see a VR tetris using two gloves, surely wired through VRPN.

In our trying out things we have managed to get a connection established, but unable to do anything with it without a segmentation fault.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on the subject.

This is the scripting resource page for the Building Virtual Worlds class at Carnegie Mellon. In the HMD related section, there’s a VRHandler python script, that can be used to interface with vrpn tracking. I can post more info if you need it, but we’ve been using this one successfully for 3 years now.
