I have been playing with depth sensors for some time now. Not so long ago I received my first Orbbec, the Astra Stereo S U3.
I am having some trouble manipulating it but specifically, I am surprised that whenever I plug it via USB to my Windows machine, the IR projector switches ON automatically and stays on for as long as the device is connected, resulting in a considerable heating when it is plugged for some time. It won’t shut down anytime.
Is this really how it is intended to work?? Or is it a bug or an error from my sample?? Other depth sensors I have like the RealSense cameras only switch on the IR projector on demand.
Hope someone can answer,
