Sensor tasking and observations as well as processes and process chains are core capabilities provided by OpenSensorHub (OSH) through its implementation of Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE), SWE Common Data, and SensorML standards. Sensor outputs can be integrated into processes and process chains receiving one or more sensors’ outputs as input and in turn generating new outputs. Processes and process chains employing Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), & Computer Vision (CV) algorithms and libraries augment situational awareness by providing reasoning, identification, classification, and knowledge discovery generating novel and timely outputs for situational awareness.
What’s more fun than Kinect?
How about RaspberryPi with Kinect…even better RaspberryPi running OpenSensorHub controlling a Kinect! That is right OpenSensorHub now supports Kinect sensors on RaspberryPi.
What do I have to do to get this tremendous trio? Well simply download a distribution of OpenSensorHub, download, build, and install the OpenSensorHub Video addon from the addons repository in GitHub and enjoy.
We have added support for Kinect on OpenSensorHub using OpenKinect’s Libfreenect library built on RasperryPi 3B+ and an interface cable and power supply combo (IDS 1 Pc Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor USB AV Adapter) readily available online for about $10. So break out your Kinects and RaspberryPi’s and have some fun!
Microsoft Kinect has been around for some time and here at OpenSensorHub.org we decided to have some fun with this neat sensor platform.
