### Extract Coordinates From Depth Camera

Hello,

How can I extract the coordinates of a single line of the image captured by depth camera. Also, how can I retrieve these coordinates using Java remoteApi?

Bests.

### Re: Extract Coordinates From Depth Camera

Hello,

I'm trying to extract the coordinates manually from depth image.
• So, first I'm calculating the angle of a pixel relative to the robot using

Code: Select all

``angle = ((double)posx/(viewWidth-1))*fov - fov/2``
where posx is the position of the pixel in range of 0 to viewWidth-1 and fov is the field of view of the depth camera.
• The relative distance between the pixel and the camera I'm calculating using:

Code: Select all

``````distance = (farClippingPlane - nearClippingPlane) * depth + nearClippingPlane
where depth is the intensity - a value between 0 and 1 - of the pixel given by the camera.
• and finally the relative position of a pixel I'm calculating using:

Code: Select all

``````distanceFromCamera*Math.cos(Math.toRadians(angle)),
