I'm thinking about buying one for windows but I'm not sure because I'm using a beamer and the room is quite dark.PiBoSo which functions exactly can we use it for? Turning the head? Better look at the apex? What else (KRP, GPBikes, WRS)?
Quote from: dibu on November 17, 2012, 05:16:18 pmThe Kinect arrived today and I installed it with SDK 1.6. The demos of the SDK toolkit run and it's also recognized by KRP.But here my problem starts. Most of it is related to the dark room with the beamer and the position of the Kinect in front of me and my wheel.-The problem is that Kinect looses tracking of my face while driving. (Not the fault of your dll, also the 'Face Tracking Visualization' demo sometimes looses contact.)Especially the movement of my hands at the wheel seems to irritate it. I have not much choise in positioning the unit because I have to avoid the beamer light. The unit is positioned in front of me but the wheel is also in the field of view and I can't set the Kinect higher. Is there any way to do some fine tuning except the values you mentioned in your kinect.ini? e.g. brightness, contrast, angle ...In the 'Kinect Explorer' I can change a lot of values but I can't use it while KRP has control. Does your kinect.dll read more values from the .ini?From my first tests the combination Kinect+KRP has potential but I have to get it reliable.
