[3D Realsense] ORBBEC 3D Camera | Description of SDK and how to use it

SDK function introduction

  1. OpenNI2 SDK is the basic SDK, based on OpenNI extension to support Orbbec 3D sensing camera. It can be used to read color stream, depth stream, infrared stream, generate point cloud, generate ONI video file and read ONI video file sample code. The provided SDK for different platforms corresponds to the Samples directory.

  2. Orbbec SDK is a new generation of basic development kits. It fully supports UVC, realizes plug-and-play without driver, and provides low-level and high-level concise and easy-to-use APIs to help developers use them flexibly in different scenarios. For OBI Zhongguang structured light, binocular, iToF and other 3D sensing cameras, it provides device parameter configuration, data stream reading and stream processing, cross-platform (Windows, Android, Linux) software development kits, providing functions including :

  • Access and control of hardware devices​
  • Access, control and data acquisition of sensors contained in the device
  • Frame synchronization and alignment control
  • Acquisition of point cloud data
  • Provide algorithm capabilities such as filtering
  • Different systems and Wrapper support.
  1. Through a simple and effective architecture design, Astra SDK has better scalability for access to application algorithms such as skeletons, and supports engines such as Unity3D.

  2. Orbbec Pose SDK is an algorithm SDK, which mainly provides 3D human pose estimation algorithm capabilities.
    Feature points can provide:

  • 21 key bone point coordinates
  • Provides both 2D and 3D bone points
  • Real-time multi-person skeleton point recognition and tracking
