What kind of light does depth sensor emit? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm going to do some test on patients and therefore I have to ask medical committee for permission to do so.

    They need want to make sure kinect will not hurt (i.e. burn) anybody and therefore I have to provide them with some detailed  information.

    Among many details (which I can answer) they want to know what kind of light does depth sensor emit (what frequency and how strong).

    Does anybody know answer to that question?

  • I've had ethics permission to use the Kinect in a medical setting. They were happy with something along the lines of "a strongly diverging, eye safe near infra red laser light" also if you try and remove the diverging filters (I've tried) then the laser refuses to turn on.

  • Thanks. I will try that. Hopefully that will be enough in my case too.
