Is there a compass modular can add to hololens?

edited November 2017 in Questions And Answers

I want to combine the indoor location system(e.g.UWB) with the hololens.So,if I use the indoor location system's coordinate data on hololens , I must know hololens's world direction to translate it to the hololens's coordinate.If the hololens can use the indoor location system's data, I think hololens can realize many interesting functions like in the science fiction films or video games.

Does hololens have a compass modular like clicker?



  • The HoloLens has a magnetometer in its sensorfusion rig for head-tracking, but the sensor is not accessible to developers.
