Guidance for Kinect robot control project RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm working on a bachelor project which involves the control of a virtual robot with the help of a Kinect v2. My purpose is to let the Kinect track the position of my hand and when I move it, the robot will follow in the same direction in x, y, z space. I'm making slow progress and wanted to ask for some guidance and thoughts of how I can reach this goal. I've checked the documentations for the Kinect but as I'm still a little of a novice in programming I can't quite tell what information of code I could use. Anything would be highly appreciated!

    Best regards!

  • Kinect will only provide you data with respect to a tracked users joint positions. How you interpret that into robotic movements, such as joystick directions or actual positional data would be left to you.
