i need to track multiple people for an installation. In the end I only need 2d coordinates for mapping the points to a carthesian grid wiich represents the ground.
First i tried using only the depth image and mounting the kinect top dowm on the cealing. That way tracking multiple people with the contour node was ok, but a little bit problematic with different heights and more than one blob per person problems.
Now i use the kinect sideways and just map the z coordinate to the y coordinate in the grid. With skeleton tracking this works well using the head joint.
My problem is that i need to track more people. As far as i know the kinect can track up to 6 persons but only two by skeleton.
does someone know which is the best way to track as many people as possible. I only need one position vector per person, so may it be possible to get 6 positions out auf the sensor?
