This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.
The coordinate system is as follows:
- Positive X is to the user’s right.
- Positive Y is up.
- Positive Z is behind the user.
Positions are measured in meters from an origin point — this point is the position the sensor was first read at.
var myGamepadPosition = gamepadPoseInstance.position;
null if the gamepad is not able to provide position data.
Note: User agents may provide emulated position values through certain techniques; when doing so they should still report
GamepadPose.hasPosition as false.
The definition of 'position' in that specification.
