  • aiming Kinect at person lying on floor is not officially supported. You might get decent results sometimes, but overall functionality will not be as reliable as detecting skeletons of people standing up and moving about.

    Some people have obtained better results for specific application domains by analyzing depth stream and performing tracking themselves instead of using skeleton frames from API.

    Good luck!

  • mak_flash,

    Just to clarify, do you mean

    a) Kinect lying on the floor, detecting a person standing on the same floor?

    b) Kinect mounted on a table, wall, monitor or ceiling, aimed at person lying on the floor?

    At first I thought you meant (b), but now I believe you mean (a). Just trying to make sure before going in one direction or the other.
