Orbbec to release public test of Orbbec Body Tracking SDK

Update: Orbbec Body Tracking SDK Beta Version is Ready for Testing. Click Here


To provide a new tool for developers working with Orbbec 3D cameras, Orbbec is announcing its Body Tracking SDK. Orbbec Body Tracking enables computers to use the 3D data from Orbbec 3D cameras to see and understand human bodies. The first release will include full-body skeleton tracking, where the skeleton joints for each visible human are identified and tracked over time, and body masks, where the system identifies human silhouettes as separate from the background.

Hand and body gesture technology makes users lives simpler, achieving “hands free” interaction by eliminating the need to hold a device or press a button. Applications for hand gesture technology include scrolling or shifting between screens with simple hand movements, and changing the channel or adjusting the volume on a TV without the use of a remote. Users can even use hand gestures to browse through content while viewing images or videos on their computers or large-screen devices. There are hundreds of possible applications including medical devices, human computer interaction, entertainment, creative industry and so much more. In the future, gesture control with Orbbec 3D sensors will become a part of everyday life.

Orbbec has plans to start a public test of its Orbbec Body Tracking software in September 2017. The first release will be compatible with the Windows OS. If you have any questions please contact: Orbbec at press@orbbec3d.com. Android and other OS support will be announced shortly.

Orbbec continues its quest to “Get 3D Right”.
