some problem about depth of every pixels, is the depth not stable RRS feed

  • Question

  • 

    this is a depth image

    Look at this depth image,  in the middle is a table , but you can see the depth of the table's edge is not smooth,  why?  is this the hardware problem of the kinect?

  • Current Kinect v1 technology is based on low resolution Infra-Red light sensor.

    It's common to have interferences and shaking depth information. 
    Interferences can increase when hitting very dark or reflective surfaces. Also natural light (from the sun, coming from a window) or incandescent lighting (projector, halogen, bulb light...) may also worsen interferences.

  • thanks for your reply, Could you give me some reference to show which factors may influence the depth data?
