Kinect 2 or the Capri 1.25 as a Humanoid Robotic’s Sensor. (Updated 03/01/2013)



I have played around with the Kinect 1 and the Carmine 1.08. Both are awesome sensors for their price. 

The main issue I have with them is their size. They are just too big to fit on anyone of my humanoid robots. 

The DARwIn-OP can almost use the Carmine 1.08 or Carmine 1.09 instead of its existing head.

Evolution of the PrimeSense sensor, PrimeSense is the company that developed the Kinect sensor for Microsoft.

Carmine 1.08

Field of View 57.5×45
Range 0.8m-3.5m
VGA depth map (640×480)
Color and Audio support
USB2.0 powered
Standard off the shelf components
OpenNI compliant


Carmine 1.09

Field of View 57.5×45
Range 0.35m-1.4m
VGA depth map (640×480)
Color and Audio support

What makes the 1.09 interesting is  its smaller min range of .35 meters.

Capri 1.25 or Kinect 2!

Using the next-gen Capri PS1200 SoC
Significant size reduction
High performance
Cost reduction


As you can see in the pictures a huge size changes, plus you get a huge improvement in performance if the rumors are correct!

 It looks like it can fit in the existing DARwIn-OP head!!

 Rumored specifications for the Kinect 2. The Capri 1.25 may only have the specs of the Kinect 1 without a RGB camera?
