How to start programming with OpenNI/OpenCV on Raspberry Pi

asked 2013-12-23 17:59:39 -0600

I am a complete novice at using the Raspberry Pi but I have a project that requires me to perform skeleton detection using an Xtion Pro (PrimeSense 3D sensor). I need to keep the Pi standalone. I have installed OpenNI2 and OpenCV 2.3.1. The sample programs for them work. First off, how do I configure OpenNI/OpenCV to work together. And then, how do I actually start programming? What do I have to use? What libraries should I add?

As I know OpenNI v2 support is not integrated to OpenCV, OpenNI v1 only. OpenCV is open source project, so you can implement OpenNI v2 integration in OpenCV in the same way as OpenNI v1 and contribute your code.

Okay but how would I go about integrating the two? I know very little about Raspberry Pi so I don't even know where to type code for OpenNI. I would really appreciate if you could offer me some details on this matter. Thank you!

You can develop the OpenNI2 integration on desktop. RPi code will be the same. Start from this page: It is instruction for OpenNI v 1.0. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with OpenNI and its integration, so I cannot help you in this work.
