WorldSense enables position tracking, so your headset will be able to track your movements in space without any external sensors. Here is what Google had to say about this development:

We worked closely with Qualcomm to create a standalone headset reference design, which partners can use as a blueprint to build from. HTC VIVE, a leader in the VR space, and Lenovo, a leader in mobile and computing, are both working on devices, with the first ones coming later this year.
