I second to that, using a Kinect is way better solution to track a skeleton of a spectator, it even work in the complete dark and in 3D...

An example : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUG-Uvq-J-w

Here are the source code from OpenNI : https://github.com/OpenNI/OpenNI

A link to the OpenKinect project : http://openkinect.org/wiki/Main_Page

Openkinect discussions group : http://groups.google.com/group/openkinect/topics

Would be nice to mix EyesWeb and Kinect..

Hi all,

a block to integrate EyesWeb and Kinect should be available very soon.

Hi,
I tried to use the Kinect block of EyesWeb 5.3.0.0.Rev. 4517
PG_Kinect1.eywx

First of all I have installed the next Kinect drivers and softwares:

1. OpenNI-Driver: OpenI-Win32-1.1.0.41-Redist.msi
2. PrimeSense NITE-Sensor-Middleware: NITE-Win32-1.3.1.5-Dev.msi
3. Hardware-Driver: SensorKinect-Win-OpenSource32-5.0.1.msi
4. Faast toolkit V.0.08: FAAST.exe, FAAST.cfg, glut32.dll

My Test:
1. OpenNI Samples:
NiSimpleRead: ok
NiViewer: ok
2. FAAST: ok

With PG_Kinect1.eywx I have the next error:

Initializing Patch "PG_Kinect1.eywx"...
ERR> Createing depth generator failed: Xiron OS got an event timeout!
ERR> Block Silhouette Extractor_1: error in method Init
ERR> Error initializing the EyesWeb execution Engine.

Any suggestions on why this is not working?

Thanks,

Gyoergy

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Hi Gyoergy,
the Kinect module of Eyesweb has been compiled with a different version of the Kinect drivers. You should uninstall your current copy and install these binaries, in the following order:

1) the OpenNI adapter (ver. 1.0.0.25)
http://www1232.megaupload.com/files/2f6 ... 0.0.25.exe

2) the modified Kinect driver (ver. 5.0.0)
https://github.com/avin2/SensorKinect/b ... e?raw=true

3) usually you should install also the NITE middleware, but the version shipped with Eyesweb should be enough
http://www422.megaupload.com/files/91bc ... 3.0.18.exe

Hope this helps,
Alberto

Hi Alberto,

thank you very much for your answer.
I get no error message any more.
But I need some help.
I have made some simple patches.
I can get colour video image and a very dark depth map image from block: Silhouette Extractor.
How can I set the depth map brighter?
And I don´t know the names/labels of user blobs, body parts etc.
I would like to have any examples to use blocks of kinect.
Probaly you can send to me any.

Regards,

Gyoergy

Hi,

for the darkness issue you could try to amplify the image by multiplying it by a number > 1 using the ScalarArithmeticOp - Double block.

The labels extracted by the block are:
  • head
  • neck
  • torso
  • waist
  • left_collar
  • left_shoulder
  • left_elbow
  • left_wrist
  • left_hand
  • left_fingertip
  • right_collar
  • right_shoulder
  • right_elbow
  • right_wrist
  • right_hand
  • right_fingertip
  • left_hip
  • left_knee
  • left_ankle
  • left_foot
  • right_hip
  • right_knee
  • right_ankle
  • right_foot

Hi,

thank you very much for your answer.
Now I can use the kinect blocks, but I have some other problems:
1. I get only 15 body parts with Draw Kinect Skeleton (skelet1.jpg). Is that OK?
2. I see the blob from Kinect Data Manager Output 4. I can read the x-y coordinates of baricenter, but I can´t
read the bounding recteck.
3. I can read the 2D coordinates of skeleton, but I can´t get the 3D coordinates.I used the blocks
"LabelledSetExtract" with "GetPoint3DCoordinates-Double".If I connect the output of LabelledSetExtract with the
input of "GetPoint3DCoordinates" then coming the error-message: "Cannot create a datatype convereter."
(pg_Kinect2.eywx)

Regards,

Gyoergy

Hello,

I have downloaded the new EyesWeb XMI 5.2.1
I am interested on using Kinect and I have installed the same drivers and OpenNI as you suggested but Had no luck getting it to work. I get the following message:

ERR> Creating depth generator failed: Can't create any node of the requested type!
ERR> Block Kinect Extractor_1: error in method Init
ERR> Error initializing the EyesWeb execution Engine.

Could you please let me know how to resolved that? Support of the Kinect will give Eyesweb a great boost.
Thank you

Vangelis

Hello,

I have downloaded the new version of Eyesweb and tested the kinect modules. I am having exactly the same issue: "I can read the 2D coordinates of skeleton, but I can´t get the 3D coordinates"
I there a workaround to this ?
Best
