Kinect - Part 2

It’s been 4 weeks since I last posted on my Kinect development, and I have some updates to share.

First and foremost the code is available to anyone who wants it or to help develop it on github here: https://github.com/RyanGordon/libfreenect/tree/unstable or if you only want the labview code and relevant files: https://github.com/RyanGordon/libfreenect/tree/unstable/wrappers/labview. The library is also making it’s way into the official OpenKinect codebase.

Second, the code is now much cleaner and the interface is much better. The LabView libraries now interface with the IMAQ vision library for easy processing and machine vision intelligence.

The next challenge is to figure out what cool thing I can do with this now! I’m hoping to write an efficient algorithm for detecting the best path for a robot to take, from point A to point B, using the Kinect.

Stay tuned for the 3rd installment of the Kinect trilogy.
