Single kinect multiple skeleton tracking RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I heard that there is new SDK available from which we can track the skeleton of 2 or 3 persons together using single Kinect.

    Please tell me about this. 

    Thank you

    1080p HD video Full, beautiful 1080p video allows for a broad range of powerful scenarios. In addition to improving video communications and video analytics applications, this provides a great input on which to build high-quality, augmented reality scenarios, or simply capture crisp still images.
    Wider/expanded field of view The expanded field of view enables a larger area of a scene to be captured by the camera. As a result, users can be closer to the camera and still in view and the camera is effective over a larger total area. Although in some cases, an increased field of view can reduce the sharpness of the image, the increased fidelity of the Kinect for Windows v2 sensor’s camera produces increased fidelity of the images and a larger field of view.
    Improved skeletal tracking The enhanced fidelity of the depth camera, combined with improvements in the software, have led to a number of key improvements in skeletal tracking. In addition to now tracking as many as six complete skeletons (compared to two with the original sensor), and tracking 25 joints per person (as compared to 20 with the original sensor), the tracked positions are more anatomically correct and stable. This enables and simplifies many scenarios, including more stable avateering, more accurate body position evaluation, crisper interactions, and more bystander involvement in interactive scenarios.
    New active infrared (IR) capabilities In addition to allowing the Kinect for Windows v2 sensor to see in the dark, the new infrared (IR) capabilities produce a lighting-independent view, which makes machine learning or computer-vision–based tasks much easier—because you don’t have to account for or model lighting-based variation.  We look forward to the many new and innovative uses that the community will develop to use this fundamentally new capability.

  • Thank for your reply.

    Could you please tell me that this features are available in SDK 1.8? or v2 have its own SDK?

  • Kinect v1 and Kinect v2 have 2 separate SDK with 2 different sets of features

    Kinect v1 = only 2 Skeletons

    Kinect v2 = 6 Skeletons
