Pico 4 Pro / Enterprise

Introduction

The Pico 4 Pro / Enterprise is a standalone VR headset powered by the Qualcomm XR2, similar to the Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets from Meta. Unlike the "consumer" version of the Pico 4, the Pro and Enterprise versions of the headset have additional eye and face tracking cameras, in addition to a few more hardware upgrades. The Pro and Enterprise editions only differ in the available system software and region availability: the Pro only being sold in mainland China, while the Enterprise is sold in Europe with "limited" enterprise software.

Streaming Assistant Setup

tip

Both the Pro and Enterprise can use the updated PC streaming app "Pico Streaming Assistant" to stream eye and face tracking data from the headset.

  1. Make sure your headset is on the latest firmware version.
  2. Enable both Eye Tracking and Lip Tracking on Pico Settings, those can be found under the LAB tab.
  3. Install Streaming Assistant on your computer.

Pico Connect (BETA) Setup

info

Pico Connect is currently not publicly available and requires access to the Beta files, only follow the following steps if you do have access to Pico Connect.

  1. Make sure your headset is using at least using v5.9.0 firmware.
  2. Enable both Eye Tracking and Lip Tracking on Pico Settings, those can be found under LAB tab.
  3. After installing Pico Connect on your computer you should update a hidden configuration to change it's facetracking to legacy protocol, find the file at C:\Users\{YourUsername}\AppData\Roaming\PICO Connect\setting.json and change faceTrackingTransferProtocol to 2. This is a temporary fix, currently the module does not support the newer protocol.

Module
