XRFrame: getPose() method

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

The XRFrame method getPose() returns the relative position and orientation—the pose—of one XRSpace to that of another space. With this, you can observe the motion of objects relative to each other and to fixed locations throughout the scene.

For example, to get the position of a controller relative to the viewer's head, you would compare the controller's gripSpace to the XRReferenceSpace of type viewer.


getPose(space, baseSpace)



An XRSpace specifying the space for which to obtain an XRPose describing the item's position and orientation.


An XRSpace to use as the base or origin for the purposes of computing the relative position and orientation.

Return value

An XRPose object specifying the position and orientation, relative to the XRSpace indicated by baseSpace.
