Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

LED / Tag Tracking

edited October 2016 in Questions And Answers

At the bottom of this article, there is a reference to tracking an LED or tagged object, but I am struggling to find much information on how to do this with the HoloLens.

**The excerpt: **
Track or Identify Tagged Stationary or Moving real-world objects/faces using LEDs or other recognizer libraries

Industrial robots with LEDs (or QR codes for slower moving objects)
Identify and recognize objects in the room
Identify and recognize people in the room (e.g. place holographic contact cards over faces)

    I believe the B15 robot demo that they showed at Build 2015 used LED tracking.
    You might dig through the GitHub depot to see if there is any useful information there.

    That is interesting, seems promising, but having trouble finding the HoloLens code. This seems like only the Robot code.

  • I contacted the team that made the demo and the HoloLens code was built on an older SDK and is not easily portable to the new. Moreover, it isn't open source as of now.
