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 […]
When a speech is recognized by the Speech Recognizer engine, the Speech Recognizer returns the recognized words as collection of the type RecognizedWordUnit class. This set of words are extremely useful to deal with any sentences. In my previous post, I discussed about recognizing a statement like “draw a read circle” or “draw a green circle”; where […]
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 […]
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.
Every Kinect sensor can be uniquely identified by an instance id. You can track and initialize each device connected based on that instance id when multiple devices are connected to the system. This instance id can be either the DeviceConnectionId or UniqueKinectId.
This tip shows you how to get list of all the Kinect sensor which are connected with system. The KinectSensor class has a static property of type KinectSensorCollection, named KinectSenors which consists of the collection of sensors that are connected with system.
