  • Question

  • Hi all:

    Can the Kinect v2 sensor record baseball in motion, and then can the SDK be used to determine the velocity and spin of the ball?John.

  • Yes and no to your questions...

    The Kinect V2 can record anything in motion. It has an HD web camera.

    The SDK on the other hand does not detect objects by default, only 6 bodies. If you want to do object tracking, you'd have to use computer vision libraries such as open cv along with the sdk ir and depth data.

    Keep a couple of things in mind, the camera records at 30fps, and filming any IR or Depth outside in direct sunlight will most likely not work due to the Sun.

  • Thanks for your response. So it sounds like for the ball flight any video recording could be used, but maybe the Kinect could be used to capture the person swinging the bat?
