In this chapter, we willdiscuss the current options for Kinect drivers and explain why OpenKinect is the best choice. We’ll also walk through installing OpenCV (Open Computer Vision) and the PCL (Point Cloud Library)—the two mathematics packages we will be using to work with Kinect data. Finally, we’ll implement the OpenKinect-PCL bridge that will a basis for future work.
