Visualising Kinect data using Matlab

A while back I made a post about recording Kinect One Stream using C#. Since then I have had a lot of questions about how to visualise and process the data in Matlab. I have now released the Matlab source code and you can find it here. This source code has been extracted from my PhD, and is highly experimental and not thoroughly tested. The script has been designed to render the depth, RGB and skeleton data into a single display. I have added a dropdown menu with some basic graphs of the MoCap skeletal to allow for exploration. You can download a sample data file here. You can then run the script by passing in the file location of...

Recording Kinect One Stream using C#

During my PhD I had to obtain three of the data streams (RGB, Depth and Skeleton) of the Kinect One sensor. Sadly, Microsoft, at the time, did not provide any example for recording the raw data itself. They do offer Kinect Studio, however it’s a closed ecosystem without the ability of accessing the raw data. In this blog post I wanted to share with you the C# code snippets for how I recorded the data streams and achieved near 30ftp while saving these streams. You can see an example of the code over on my GitHub page here - please note that the code it is not optimised in any way. The code is very basic and just an...
