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.
