Getting KINECT device ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a unique ID associated to a KINECT device? Basically, we want to be able to track where KINECT devices are used. If there is some unique ID for the device is there a method or way to get it?

    Are you looking for

    nuiruntime.NuiCamera.UniqueDeviceName;
    

    ?

  • Yes, each Kinect device does have a unique ID and you can track each device connected based on that ID when multiple devices are connected to one computer. To get this unique device ID in C#:

    */////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////*

    Runtime nuiRuntime; // Used in creating and instance of the Runtime class

    nuiRuntime = Runtime.Kinects[0];//(If one kinect device is connected, instance of runtime class is created like this)

    After creating the instance of the runtime class, the unique device ID is obtained :

     

    nuiRuntime.InstanceName; 

    *//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////*

    Hope this helps,

  • This could be it. Is this device the same no matter what computer it gets plugged into? Just curious. We are loking at using a set of them on a big campus and just want to know where they are being used.

  • Hi, Josiah,

    Is there any C++ approach to the device ID?

    Thanks,
