Projects

  • FusionKit

    FusionKit is a software suite developed in the course of the the research group's participation in the INTERACT project. It aims to be a low-cost tracking system based on multiple Kinect time-of-flight cameras, which enables markerless body tracking as well as marker-based object tracking for a broad range of HCI and tracking scenarios. The toolkit is to be released as fully open source software and can be used and modified by industry, researchers and other groups interested in an easy-to-setup, affordable tracking solution.
