connect v rep to kinect for moving robot

Post by jeong »

Hello.

I'm beginner of coppeliasim. So I have a question.

I've seen this video on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPFHh7IpTUs

I looked up similar questions in the forums. However, I could not find the
example source file, etc., so I ask the forum again.

I am trying to proceed with a project that moves in real time by connecting with coppeliasim as in the video above with kinect. Do you have the source code(for instance astiKinectControl.ttt)? Or, I would appreciate it if you could send it by e-mail.

For reference, I am using kinect v1.

Thank you.
kind regards

Hello,

there are probably many ways of doing this (e.g. via ROS or other middleware), but we did that in the past via simple socket connection with CoppeliaSim, where a server application would handle communication with the kinect and CoppeliaSim.
The project is really old and outdated. Additionally, it was only running on Windows. But We'll send you the source code.

Cheers

Thank you very much.

Also, I have one question.

You told me many ways of doing that one. I couldn't find any other way other than that video.
How can I find another ways?

kind regards

Or do you have any sample to connect between V rep and real environment kinect?

I don't know the path to "programming/windows Only Projects/kinect Server"

I'm really sorry to ask the easy problem.

I'm so appreciate you

kind regards

We have sent you the c++ project files that allow you to connect to a real Kinect. Not sure which version of the kinect though. But as said, that is very outdated. Probably a better method would be to use the ROS openni_camera package.

Cheers
