Data transfer through USB port
We’re a developer of a research project for the Microsoft HoloLens. We’re developing a software for treating phobias e.g. arachnophobia.
Currently we’re experimenting with sensors like Motion Leap to include better hand detection to our software. Results are quite fine, the combination works well, except one certain weak point, and that is latency because of the fact that Motion Leap sends data via cable to a PC and the PC sends this data via WIFI to the HoloLens. This WIFI connection causes serious latencies.
It would be the best way to use the USB port of the HoloLens for direct data transfer with cable. We learned that there’s no (more?) official way to use the USB port for direct data transfer, but still there might be a possibility for using this port. For us it will increase the quality of the implementation dramatically and would show completely new fields of use for the HoloLens.
An improvement of this latency is crucial for our project, because we’re working with phobic patients.
Any help is appreciated. More info about this very interesting research project on demand.
