PositionSensorVRDevice.resetSensor()

Obsolete

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The resetSensor() method of the VRDevice interface can be used to reset the sensor if desired, returning the position and orientation values to zero.

Syntax

PositionSensorVRDevice.resetSensor();

Parameters

None.

Returns

Void.

Examples

Our positionsensorvrdevice demo uses the WebVR API to update the view of a simple 2D canvas scene on each frame of a requestAnimationFrame loop. It features, among other things, a "Reset Sensor" button in the UI, which when pressed runs the resetSensor() function on the position sensor. The JavaScript looks like this:

document.querySelector('button').onclick = function() {
  gPositionSensor.resetSensor();
}

When the button is pressed, the current position, orientation, etc. of the sensor/head mounted display is set to be 0 — this makes the method useful for calibration when an app is first loaded.
