Getting Started

Step 1: Download the PST Software Suite

Download and install the latest version of the PST Software Suite for your platform.

Windows 64-bit
Windows 32-bit
Linux 64-bit

Step 2: Connect the PST to your computer

Plug the USB cable(s) into your computer and plug the power cable into the PST unit.

Position the PST unit such that it has a clear overview of the tracking work space. Putting it on a tripod is recommended for good results.

Step 3: Prepare your tracking target

Prepare your tracking target for tracking by adding a random pattern of retro-reflective markers onto your device.

Make sure the PST unit can always see at least 4 markers while tracking.

Step 4: Train your tracking target

Start up the PST-Client software and train your tracking target using our simple training procedure.

Save the resulting target model so the PST unit will be able to detect your tracking target.

Alternatively, convert an existing 3D model of your tracking target into a JSON based target model file and import it into the PST-Client software.

Step 5: Start tracking

Activate your newly created tracking target, move the target around in front of your PST unit and see it being tracked!

You are now ready to start working with the tracking data!

Step 6: Start working

Directly export and analyze the 6DoF tracking results or quickly integrate the tracking results into your own application using the PST SDK. We offer multiple industry-standard protocols for transmitting tracking data while the PST SDK is accessible through C++, C, C# and Python APIs. Plugins for direct integration with Unreal Engine 4 and Unity will be coming Q4 2021.
