    [OCULUS] How to measure exercise pedals speed in VR?

    Hello guys!

    This is my first post. I have been searching the forums, but I couldn't find an answer.

    At the moment I am doing my graduation project.
    I have to create a VR-exergame in order to physically activate elderly in healthcare facilities.

    My idea was to make the elderly use exercise pedals to move forward in the VR-experience.
    Usually, I am only doing some modelling and environment design, so I have no technical background.

    I really don't know where to start.
    I was thinking about something like this: exercise pedals -> speedsensor -> Arduinoboard -> Oculus
    But it is also possible to attach the motion controllers to the pedals in order to measure speed.

    I don't know if this is quite an easy job or how much time it takes, but any help will be appreciated!

    Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

    Hello Nopity,

    Welcome to the Forums.

    Have you heard of ?

    They describe the Unreal engine plugin as "Preliminary" so doing some research on what to expect is advised.


      Hey Alex,

      Sorry for answering extremly late.
      I was actually waiting for a response on the wrong account!

      I will do some research on Virzoom today.
      I will let you know if something usefull came out of it

      Thanks a lot for your response!
