Touchpad movementsystem based on MotionController Rotation, Vive

I am trying to make a touchpad movement system based on the rotation of the motion controller for the Vive.
So when you move forward and then rotate the motioncontroller it moves forward based on the new rotation of the motion controller.
Think games like Onward. It feels like a simple thing to pull off but i am a newcommer to development and english is a second language so any advice would be helpfull.
