What is the Skeleton Position RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you provide me any information how the "Position" property of a SkeletonData object is calculated? Is it the center of mass or just the average of all joint positions? Would be helpfull to know how it is calculated or which position it realy expressed.

    Thanks in advance.

  • The sdk just creates the skeleton and position data from the kinect hardware's data but i think a kinect team member would be more likely to answer that question in better terms.

    Im using the position data for my kinect multipoint project when is like the kinect mouse project on codeplex except for multiple mouse instead of one.

  • The SkeletonData.Position property returns SkeletonData.Joints[JointID.HipCenter].Position;

  • This is not true !!!

    With a simple test you could see that the skeleton.Position and skeleton.Joints[JointType.HipCenter].Position are differents.

    Before answare a question, be sure that it is correct.

  • Most likely it is the Center of Mass from the identified User.

    You also get this position without active skeleton tracking, so it cant be an average of all joints.
