Oculus CV1

The Oculus CV1 has some unique features:

IPD slider


This slider adjusts the IPD (Interpupillary distance or eye spacing), which can be used to improve the focus for individuals whose eye spacing is significantly different from the adult average of 64 millimeters (2 and 19/32 inches). In general, try to have this slider in the center as most people will have a comfortable experience at the default settings. Persons who have significantly larger or smaller heads, especially children or adolescents, should be instructed to adjust the slider to see if it improves focus for them.

Light Sensor


The Oculus CV1 has a light sensor above the bridge of the nose to ensure that the headset is only active if being worn or mounted on a calibration stand. When the sensor is exposed to light, the headset screens will be black, and any simulation software will be paused

Velcro Adjustment Straps


The Oculus has a rigid frame with a tracking device at the back of the head to ensure full 360 degree tracking. The tension on this frame can be adjusted with the two sets of Velcro straps. Always make sure the trainees are aware of this adjustment potential and have a comfortable fit with the headset.
