Determining a Player's height? RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can we accurately determine a player's height?  I've played with some tangential equations, and it seems to fluctuate based on the distance the user is from the kinect.

    I have an application I'm writing that I need to calculate the user's height.  I'm struggling a bit in seeing if I need to be able to see the full player's body (floor to head).  I thought I could fix the position of the Kinect (say, 5ft high) - calculate how much of the user I am seeing in my image frame (to their head) - and add that to 5ft.

    So far, no luck.  I'm trying to be within an inch of accuracy.

    Should I be looking at the OpenNi framework?
