Some Issues for using the Kinect as industry solution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, Everyone.

    I am planning to use the Kinect sensor as an IT solution for the manufacturing customers, and going on the trial actual use as the verification.

    I have some issues through this, I hope someone could give me some advises or just hints,

    1. I'm trying to use it inside of the manufacturing factory, but I can't sometimes track the exact skeleton by the many of obstacles. How can I make it better under this circumstances.

    2. I have to take the movie without any cables, and do it with a portability. Do someone have any experiences that took movies without any cables?

    I have some issues more, but I want to know above at first.

    Any confirmations are appreciated.

  • This would all depend on what you are looking to do. Skeletal tracking was designed for un-obstructed view of the user facing the camera. If that doesn't work your scenario, you may need to implement your own "blob" detection/computer vision type system to analyzed the data. Keep in mind, depending on the environment, you may be introducing other sources of IR interference(dust), that can add more noise to the data.

    You could use a tool like Kinect Studio and capture data from the factory to help with determining the quality of the data you will get to ensure you can achieve the end goal. Kinect Studio is provided with the Kinect for Windows toolkit:
