Hello,

Is there a way to perform a 3D simulation of the Kinect sensor y V-REP?

Kind regards,

Antonio

Hello Antonio,

There are 3 Kinect models in current V-REP release:
  • Models/other/interface to kinect: allows you to connect to a real kinect and retrieve skeleton data. That model is currenlly only operational on Windows.
  • Models/components/sensors/kinect: simulates a kinect and visualizes its depth map that can be accessed
  • Models/components/sensors/kinect - closest point calculation: simulates a kinect and calculates the point in 3D of the closest feature (meant as an example)
Cheers

Hi,

I'm new working with V-rep and im going to do a project with kinect using V-REP.

I have already install OpenNI drivers and follow the steps that shows in V-rep when we try to do something with Kinect, but still have an error ocurring:

Unable to locate the entry point of the procedure _glutCreateWindowWithExit on DLL(dynamic-link library) glut32.dll


If anyone knows how to solve it or can give me a few tips how to use the kinect with V-REP it will be gratefull

Cheers

Hello,

You are probably using an old version of the glut32.dll library. Or maybe a strange flavor of it? Can you try with other versions?

Cheers

Is the Xbox One Kinect v2/ Kinectv2 for windows also possible to simulate?

you can also simulate that Kinect, you will have to slightly adapt/adjust the existing kinect model.
For connection to the real Kinect, you will need to write a client/server application that connects to V-REP. Have a look at the sample located in programming/windowsOnlyProjects/kinectServer. If a ROS package is available for the Kinect, this would be much easier.
