  • hi.

    If you placed kinect in half of the height of the same table what exactly happens for skeleton tracking and field of vision?
    For example in normal situation i placed the kinect in 80cm table. what happens for skeletons mesaures if i placed kinect in 40 cm table?

  • placement of the sensor will effect what the values might be but you are getting the data. Skeleton tracking is a world position in relation to the camera. If my hand is vertically level with the sensor at 80cm, when it drops to 40cm, then my hand location would be 40cm higher now.

    Keep in mind, field of view of the v1 sensor may restrict where you put it and may required that you use the elevation api's to help move the sensor to "get a better view"
