At my company we are using Kinect body tracking for recognizing and assessing fitness exercises. As the Kinect is no longer produced we urgently need an alternative. We are currently testing Orbbec among available alternatives, but it seems that the detection accuracy is not appropriate for our needs. I prepared a comparison of one of the basic exercises we have implemented - Biceps Curls between a Kinect and Orbbec here is the link to the video: biceps_curl_comparison.mp4 - Google Drive
As clearly visible the hand joints are lost in the upper position. The same problem occurs also with Kinect turned off so it is not the problem of two sensors interfering each other.
Are there plans to improve main detection algorithms? If so then when we can get the improvements?
