openni_kinect/kinect_accuracy This page discusses both the precision and the accuracy of the Kinect sensor. If you are not sure what the difference between precision and accuracy is, check out this Wikipedia page. Precision of the Kinect sensor Because the Kinect is essentially a stereo camera, the expected error on its depth measurements is proportional to the distance squared. The raw depth images coming from the Kinect sensor are not rectified. Accuracy of the Kinect sensor The accuracy of a calibrated Kinect sensor turns out to be very high. The accuracy of the Kinect is greatly affected by the intrinsic and extrinsic calibration of the Kinect cameras.
9 Incredible Developments for Kinect in Education For those of us raised in typical school settings, the memory of straight-row desks with little activity is all too familiar. As we’re all aware, the Kinect has the potential to evolve classrooms beyond this 18th century model of learning to a structure that’s aligned with brain research and the benefits of active learning. With the release of the noncommercial Kinect SDK, several new Kinect applications are emerging. Here are nine key developments that reveal the educational value of Kinect in education. Do you have an app you’d like to submit for download or link to? 1. This is a development by Tom Smurthwaite. [Arkaos is] a little experiment into using the Kinect with individuals with special needs. ArKaos is an application for live visual performance, conceived as a visual sampler for video loops that can be triggered from the computer, or through a hardware interface.

openni/Contests/ROS 3D/RGBD-6D-SLAM Description: The Kinect is used to generate a colored 3D model of an object or a complete room. Submitted By: Felix Endres, Juergen Hess, Nikolas Engelhard, Juergen Sturm, Daniel Kuhner, Philipp Ruchti, Wolfram Burgard Keywords: RGBD-SLAM, 3D-SURF, Feature Matching, RANSAC, Graph SLAM, Model Generation, Real-time This page describes the software package that we submitted for the ROS 3D challenge. Summary We developed a novel method to quickly acquire colored 3D models of objects and indoor scenes with a hand-held Kinect camera. Video In the video we show the generation of a model of our PR2 and a 360° "panorama" of the students lab. Data As a sample for building 3D object models, here is an example of a box and a mug. The scene has been captured with several snapshots instead of a continuous run, to reduce the size of the resulting file. The bag file can be used to play the globally corrected point clouds, e.g., for visualization with rviz: rosbag play <bagfile>. How to Reproduce The Entry 1.
