Kinect has changed the way people play games and experience entertainment. Now, Kinect for Windows offers the potential to transform how people interact with computers and Windows-embedded devices in multiple industries, including education, healthcare, retail, transportation, and beyond.
KinectionShiva is a simple plugin for ShivaEngine wish open up the limitless possibilities offered by Kinect technology.
The Api of the plugin is very easy to use :
- nCount = kinect.getKinectCount ( )
Returns the number of Kinect sensors that are connected to the computer.
- bOk = kinect.init ( nIdKinect )
Initializes the Kinect with id nIdKinect (begin to 0)
- sMessage = kinect.getErrorMessage ( )
if kinect.init return false use this function to know what happened
- nFps = kinect.getFps ()
return the kinect FPS process in frame by seconds.
- fSmoothing, fCorrection, fPrediction, fJitterRadius, fMaxDeviationRadius = kinect.getKinectSmoothParameters( nIdKinect)
return Smoothing information about kinect with id nIdKinect
- bOk = kinect.setKinectSmoothParameters( fSmoothing, fCorrection, fPrediction, fJitterRadius, fMaxDeviationRadius )
set Smoothing information about kinect with id 0
- nX, nY, nZ = kinect.getBonesPosition ( nIdBones )
calculate bone postion for skeleton 0 of current active kinect (only one player in the first version)
- nX, nY, nZ, nW = kinect.getBonesOrientation ( nIdBones )
calculate bone orientation (absolute) for skeleton 0 of current active kinect (only one player in the first version)
- bOk = kinect.setAngle( nAngle )
Sets the Kinect's elevation or tilt angle in the range [-27 degrees .. +27 degrees], which defines the sensor's Interaction Space
