I am making a mobile base for a robot with wheels. I want to use a Kinect like a movement sensor (to avoid obstacles, recognition of people, etc...) but I read that there is 2 models, the 360 and the Developer.

Which Kinect works well for my job? And another thins, its there another thing that can I use like a movement sensor? To see diferent posibilities,

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Robotics.SE Elseine. While we'd love helping others (that's why we're here), we'd also love to see that you have made an effort before asking the question. Have you tried looking at what are the differences between the 360 and the developer models? What major differences have you seen between the two that makes you wonder which would be more suitable? What is your own requirements for the task and what are the shortcomings of each of them? $\endgroup$ – Shahbaz Nov 22 '13 at 14:24
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I read it, but I have the same question. I dont know what is better or easier to use. $\endgroup$ – Elseine Nov 27 '13 at 15:03
  • $\begingroup$ There is no difference development wise, other then what I mention in the thread @srlm links to. Choose based on your preference. $\endgroup$ – Evil Closet Monkey Jan 8 '14 at 18:58
