Scanner 3D (kinect)

Bac à sable interactif augmenté (kinect) Is it possible to detect heat signatures using Kinect. What is the difference between thermal and infrared imaging? It seems to me that your title and the body of your question could be interpreted as asking two different things.

What is the difference between thermal and infrared imaging?

One asks about imaging, and the other about the radiation the image is made from. Others have talked about the frequencies and wave lengths you might infer from "thermal" and "infrared". I'm more interested by what is implied when you talk about the image. I'm not sure what products on the market are actually producing, but there's a difference between producing an image of the colour temperature of the surfaces in the image, vs the quantities of radiation received from different parts of the image.

I.e a monochrome or false colour image might be based on the colour of the light reserved or it's brightness. If you are producing a thermal image for the purpose of auditing energy leakage from a building, then you want an image that shows you the rate of heat emission of surfaces in the image. C# - Can I figure out skin tone or body temperature using kinect? Using a Kinect as an Infrared Camera. The Kinect is a peripheral for the Xbox 360 console that allows a user to interact with the Xbox 360 without touching a controller.

Using a Kinect as an Infrared Camera

A general description of the Kinect is that it is a depth camera. This means that you can place objects in front of it, and it will compute the distance from it to the objects, thus creating a depth image. Therefore, the Kinect can provide the locations of objects in an image relative to itself, and this information can be used in a variety of projects. Also, the Kinect contains many components that, with slight modifications, can be used for new purposes. As an example, this project will show how the Kinect can be used as an infrared (IR) camera. For a detailed description of how the Kinect works and how it can be used in different projects, I recommend that you read Making Things See by Greg Borenstein ( The image in Step 1 shows the components of the Kinect that are necessary to understand this project.

It projects a pattern with infrared light and calculates a depth image using a camera. It also has a color camera and four microphones. The Y axis of the sensor is remote controllable with an in-build motor. The color of the LEDLight-emitting diode is settable by software as well.

The Microsoft Kinect sensor is a peripheral device (designed for XBox and windows PCs) that functions much like a webcam.

However, in addition to providing an RGB image, it also provides a depth map. Meaning for every pixel seen by the sensor, the Kinect measures distance from the sensor. This makes a variety of computer vision problems like background removal, blob detection, and more easy and fun! The Kinect sensor itself only measures color and depth. However, once that information is on your computer, lots more can be done like “skeleton” tracking (i.e. detecting a model of a person and tracking his/her movements). What hardware do I need? First you need a “stand-alone” kinect. Standalone Kinect Sensor v1. Some additional notes about different models: Kinect 1414: This is the original kinect and works with the library documented on this page in the Processing 3.0 beta series.

SimpleOpenNI. Installation Kinect Linux. Installation des différents logiciels et drivers pour utiliser la kinect sous linux En fait il y a plusieurs couches logicielles plus ou moins interdépendantes : libfreenect : driver open source qui permet de récupérer les flux vidéo de la kinect OpenNI : logiciel fabriqué par la boite qui a inventé la kinect, permet de récupérer des images et infos brutes PrimeSensor : idem, couche en plus qui permet de récupérer des infos + élaborées : présence d'une personne, squelette, mains.

Il existe plusieurs versions customisées de ce PrimeSensor NITE : idem, suite logiciels de tests OSCEleton : serveur OSC qui se connecte au serveur de PrimeSensor / OpenNI pour transférer les infos de squelettes à d'autres programmes (Pure Data, Processing) Plusieurs méthodes existent pour connecter la kinect à des logiciels d'interaction, soit via OSC et OSCEleton, soit plus directement (voir la page précédente ou Pd Pidip plus bas) Simple quoi...
