Hi I am going to buy a Microsoft Kinect for the following reasons & Purposes
- It is Cheap
- i need to do some series of experiments using it with iRobot Create.
- these experiments include Localization Algorithms like SLAM , Particle Filters etc.
- for these reasons i need to get the range data from the Environment
So here is my Question
Is Kinect alone enough to sense range data or can it even take range data.
I have done some search over Google and i see people at MIT and others using Kinect with Laser Range finders.
So tell me if its enough alone as a sensing device for range data or do i need something else with it Note:Buying a Laser range finder is not possible for me as it costs more than 1000$
