You can develop app using Kinect for Windows V2.0 on Windows 10 as similar to previous version of Operating Systems. I am receiving several questions on building Kinect for Windows SDK application on Windows 10. Tough I personally responded to most the questions, to benefits for the larger audience here is a quick post to Getting started […]
Running a Kinect v2 device and a Kinect for Windows application on Windows 10 is not difficult nor different than what we have seen in the earlier version of Windows Operating System. You can run a Kinect for Windows application (either a desktop app, or a store app ) on Windows 10. However, incase you […]
When you are developing a Kinect application, you must ensure that the Kinect device attached with your application supports all the required capabilities. If the attached device does not support the capabilities that your application need, you can prompt a message to user on the same. Now, how do we identify the capabilities of Kinect […]
Developing a speech enabled application using Kinect for Windows SDK is really fun. To build an extensive Kinect based speech enabled application along with dynamically loading and unloading grammar, use of wildcard is tremendous important. With the use of wildcard, we can ignore of the speech for whose we really don’t not care about. This work […]
Microsoft Speech API provides the SpeechRecognitionEngine class, which works as a backbone for the speech-enabled application. With the Kinect SDK as well, the SpeechRecognitionEngine class accepts an audio stream from the Kinect sensor and processes it. The Recognition engines, requires set of grammars ( set of commands), that tell the recognizer what to match. You can […]
Here is another tip on Kinect for Windows SDK Tips series. The color camera of Kinect device delivers the color stream data with the combination of three basic color components red, green and blue (RGB). This stream data is nothing but a succession of still image frame that consist of the color pixel. You can take […]
Kinect device has a color camera that delivers the color stream data with the combination of three basic color components red, green and blue (RGB). This stream data is nothing but a succession of still image frame and the sensor can deliver them with a range of 12 to 31 frame per second (fps) depends […]
This is an interesting question. Can we really adjust sensor based on user positions ? The answer will be YES, We can. But limitation is only either in horizontal or vertical direction. Kinect device has a tiny motor which is used to change the camera and sensor’s angles, to get the correct position of […]
In one of our previous tip ( Using Kinect Instance Id to Initialize the Kinect Sensor ) we have seen how we can initialize Kinect device using the instance id. In this tip, you will see how we can use the instance id to get the device index position.
You can capture the Kinect sensor image data stream either in format of color or depth data. Both the data streams can be capture in parallel as the data is being captured in two different channel. Sensor start sending the data only when the stream channels are enabled and sensor is running. You can check […]
In a single word, the answer is “No”. The SDK, as the name suggest, is a developer toolkit, which requires only for development. “Kinect for Windows Runtime”, can take care of the Kinect application execution in the end user system or production environment when you have an executable Kinect application along with other application dependency.
