Modify noise model of Kinect

Post by haarslev » 23 Sep 2017, 18:42

Hi,

I want to have a look on the noise model, specifically removing the noise of the RGB camera.
I can't seem to find the source for the simulated Kinect model.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Hello,

the simulated Kinect model uses a vision sensor to acquire data. Such a vision sensor has precision issues (or noise if you wish), since it is directly linked to the OpenGl depth map resolution. So the noise you might see is not intended, and just a byproduct of OpenGl. You can reduce it somewhat by reducing the distance between the vision sensor's near and far clipping planes.

Cheers
