Kinect for Windows

Ryan Mickler

I was wondering if anyone has been able to get the Kinect for Windows (the newer model)? I’ve had little success. I can get the Kinect for Xbox working fine through openNI.

 

There’s also recently been a tool to link the Kinect for windows SDK (1.5) with OpenNI. http://code.google.com/p/kinect-mssdk-openni-bridge/

I was hoping that we could modify the PCL openNI drivers to include compatibility with this bridge.

I'd be curious to see if this works as well. It would be silly for them to have changed the firmware in a way where
OpenNI drivers do not work -- I'm pretty sure the community will just make that happen ;)

Unless were talking about BSD code, I think everything else has to stay in its own repository so that it doesn't taint
our own tree :(

Cheers,
Radu.

It is actually not compatible with Xbox Kinect... But the latest
OpenNI sensorkinect driver by avin2 is now compatible with Kinect for
Windows. Expect some instability on Linux/Mac though.

Re: Kinect for Windows

Ryan Mickler
Great to hear. However, aren’t we using some patched version of Avin2's drivers to get PCL compatibility?

Re: Kinect for Windows

Ryan Mickler
Thanks for your help Nicolas. I have them both working fine now. Both the Kinect4Windows and the Xbox version.

Hi Ryan,

I'm Ryan #2.  I'm having trouble getting my Kinect4Windows (arrived last week) to be recognized with OpenNI / PCL.  Can you post what you had to do to get it working?

Otherwise, here are some things that might be giving me trouble:
* I installed the prebuild binary for Win7/64, and ended up with two of the Windows Driver Package from PrimeSense in my Uninstall/Change programs list... is that right?
* I still have the Microsoft Kinect Drivers (1.5, I think) installed... do I need to uninstall them?

Thanks for your help
Ryan #2

Re: Kinect for Windows

Ryan Mickler
Ok. You'll need two things
1) Avin2's latest SensorKinect drivers: git://github.com/avin2/SensorKinect.git
        There should be binaries in the git clone. These have some stability issues, but at least they work.
2) Latest Unstable release of OpenNI binaries: http://75.98.78.94/Downloads/OpenNIModules.aspx
       
You can leave the Kinect SDK installed, but you'll need to switch the driver over in device manager when you want to use it.
If you want to use an xbox Kinect at the same time, you can also install the PCL patched Kinect drivers on top of all this, just keep using the latest unstable OpenNI.

You should see a driver called 'Kinect4Windows' in device manager when it's all working. Whereas the Xbox driver is called 'Kinect Camera'

Hope this helps.

(so happy that I'm number 1)
