Vertical Sensor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there an easy way to add 90 degrees to all of the raw data for the skeleton points?

    I have mounted the sensor vertical (rotated 90 degrees) so that it has a very tall field of view for tracking a single person's whole body from close up.

    Obviously, the picture will be rotated 90 degrees, I just want to visualize the skeletal data.

  • Do you get skeleton data at all after rotating the sensor? Because i don't.

    It looks like the kinect does not consider it's rotation for depth-processing, and thus won't recognize a person when rotated. ( no skeleton, no bodyframe, ... )

    Would be a usefull addition though.

  • Why are you rotating it?

    The depth view, which is the source for skeleton tracking, has almost square resolution (512x424) so it has little technical advantage of doing so.

  • Anything but mounting the sensor horizontal and level with the floor is not supported. It may work but not something that is guaranteed to work or be stable. As Brekel stated, the depth sensor is essentially square so what is the scenario here?
