OSVR™ is an open-source software platform for VR/AR applications.

OSVR provides an easy and standardized way to discover, configure and operate hundreds of devices: VR goggles, position trackers, depth cameras, game controllers and more. OSVR supports multiple operating systems, plugs into leading game engines and is freely available under a permissive Apache 2.0 license.

OSVR can be extended with open- or closed-source plugins. Plugins can provide support for new devices or add analysis capabilities such as a gesture engine, sensor fusion and data logging and eye tracking. OSVR was started by experts in gaming and virtual reality and is supported by an ever-growing list of hardware vendors, game studios, universities and software companies.

This white paper provides a high-level overview of the motivation behind OSVR, its structure and key attributes.
