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! :slight_smile:

Hello Nopity,

Welcome to the Forums.

Have you heard of https://www.virzoom.com/ ?

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

Hey Alex,
