Hello all,

I have released a new version of my SensorKinect driver for OpenNI.

It includes all recent changes from the unstable branch of PrimeSense:
1) MacOSX support
2) MultiSensor support (Didn't test it, I only have one sensor).
3) Added binary installers for Mac & Linux.

It's located in:
https://github.com/avin2/SensorKinect/tree/unstable
Precompiled bins at:
https://github.com/avin2/SensorKinect/tree/unstable/Bin

To use it you will need to install the new unstable released of OpenNI
unstable and NITE unstable:
http://www.openni.org/downloadfiles/openni-binaries/20-latest-unstable
http://www.openni.org/downloadfiles/openni-compliant-middleware-binaries/33-latest-unstable

Also please follow the README files if you are installing on Linux/
MacOSX
(Use: "sudo ./install.sh" to install each package and do not forget to
install latest libusb)

I'm now working on adding led & motor support and will add that soon!
After that I want to work on the audio.

avin.

Hi Avin,

excellent work!

I have one question about the Motor Device showing up. Is there any
sample code how to control it or is it just a fake entry for now and i
should use freenect for the motor?

Thanks

Tim

Avin, I've gone through all of the steps. A few notes:

-Users will want to have the latest Java update installed first.

-There may be a prompt to configure python during the install of the macport lib stuff.

-The install.sh part needs to be done like this:

1: " cd /folder-path-to-install-goes-here "
then
2: " sudo sh install.sh "


...but, now I'm trying to check stuff. Here is where I ask a really ignorant question:

How are these OpenNI sample files supposed to be compiled on OS X? They don't look like Xcode projects. Is there a note about it somewhere? There isn't a readme that I can see in the dl, despite the note about reading the "read me" for instructions on the OpenNI site.

Hi avin,

Great work, Thanks!!!

I'm enjoying myself with sample applications of OpenNI and NITE on my
macs.

To work Sample-PointViewer, I have to modify every xml files in the
Nite-1.3.0.18/Data as follows.
Line 17: < MapOutputMode xRes="640" yRes="480" FPS="30"/>

Ah, nevermind, I see now that it looks like all the apps need to be run from terminal.

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting any of the examples to work.

I always get the following error:
Open failed: File not found!
Press any key to continue . . .

I've tried compiling and reinstalling everything multiple times, but
without success.

I'm on a 15" MBP (Early 2008/ MacBook Pro 4,1)

Any help is much appreciated.

Matti

I'm trying to build on my Mac. OSX 10.6.6, Macbook, Intel, dual core,
pretty reasonable machine, I think.

When I run the ./RedistMaker tool on just what I check out of
githunb, I get:

*********************************

Source/OpenNI/XnBaseNode.cpp

When I search out the -malign-double occurence (in /Platform/Linux-x86/
Build/CommonMakefile) and remove it, I get a huge pile of compile
errors from Redistmaker. Notably:

* Building OpenNI...

and lots of stuff that looks like that.

I work mostly in Java and Python, so maybe there's a bunch of stuff
that I just don't know to do in C++ land, but I think I did everything
according to what the README said. I assumed the Linux instructions
applied to OSX.

Hi John!
You seem to be using the stable version (1.0.0.23) which does not
support MacOSX.

You need to use the unstable version from:
https://github.com/OpenNI/OpenNI/tree/unstable
or
git clone https://github.com/OpenNI/OpenNI.git -b unstable

Precompiled bins are also available in:
http://www.openni.org/downloadfiles/openni-binaries/20-latest-unstable

Thanks,
Ziv.

Matti

get the same thing when I double click on them from the finder. Have
you tried running them from the command line in the installed
directory?

eg:

cd OpenNI-Bin-MacOSX-v1.0.0.25/Samples/Bin/Release
./Sample-NiUserTracker

Regards,
Rhys Lewis

Thanks Avin and Ziv. Everything works well on my Mac.

As an aside, I could see a need to go between the RGB mode and the IR
mode without having to restart the program (changing "IR/Image" in the
SampleConfig file). Is there a way to switch modes programmatically?
The ROS code is able to seamlessly switch between the two to calibrate
both sensors. I've seen this done with the OpenKinect library as
well.

I apologize if the question has already been answered in another
thread.

There's no problem with doing that.

OpenNI fully supports dynamic streams management.

You can check out the NiViewer sample code on how to close and open
different streams in runtime.

Thanks,
Ziv.
