[#KINECT] HowTo: Change the camera angle



in today’s post we will move the angle of the sensor up or down using the SDK APIs.

It is initially possible to move the camera up or down a twenty-seventh, and to try them we will from the example of yesterday.


1 We modify our application to allow us to define the angle of inclination of the Kinect using a text box and a button.

2. The Xaml is as the following example

   1: <Window x:Class="ElBruno.KinectViewer.MainWindow"
   2:         xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
   3:         xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
   4:         Title="El Bruno - Kinect Viewer" Height="480" Width="740">
   5:     <Grid>
   6:         <Grid.RowDefinitions>
   7:             <RowDefinition Height="40"></RowDefinition>
   8:             <RowDefinition Height="*"></RowDefinition>
   9:             <RowDefinition Height="40"></RowDefinition>
  10:         </Grid.RowDefinitions>
  11:         <TextBlock Text="Camera Viewer" FontSize="20" HorizontalAlignment="Center" 
  12:                    Foreground="Black" Grid.Row="0" />
  13:         <Image x:Name="CameraViewer" Margin="10,10,10,10" 
  14:                Stretch="Fill" Grid.Row="1" />
  15:         <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Grid.Row="2" >
  16:             <TextBox x:Name="txtAngle" Text="0" FontSize="20" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Foreground="Black" />
  17:             <Button x:Name="SetCameraAngle" Click="SetCameraAngle_Click" Content="Set Camera Angle" />
  18:         </StackPanel>
  19:     </Grid>
  20: </Window>

3. Then the implementation of the event click of the button is rather simple

   1: private void SetCameraAngleClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
   2: {
   3:     _kinect.NuiCamera.ElevationAngle = Convert.ToInt32(txtAngle.Text);
   4: }

Today I will not put the example to download because it is quite simple to modify. And tomorrow some Audio and Speech if the bird allow me.

Greetings @ Here
