Production Kinect Device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Planning a couple of projects and new to RDS. Kinect is now the camera sensor of choice, but in the "Getting Started" documentation it is careful to point out that Kinect is not good to use for rugged or prolonged use (vibration, etc, etc). So Kinect is fine for the development phase, given that all code would be built against the Kinect sdk, what hardware can we migrate to when developing production hardware in replacement of the Kinect device?

    Regards

    Thanks

  • At this time there is no rugged Kinect sensor available. Today you would expect a Kinect enabled solution to operate in a building and using our robot in a home. I cannot say what a future Kinect will look like but as you will see if you scan around the web Kinect is being used on many research robots.
