Dear Astra pros,
We’re planning to realise a hand gesture based control for the GUI of our software. Our Software is Windows C#, WPF.
We need the recognition of hand gestures to be reliable within a distance of at least 1.5m to do zooming, panning and dragging gestures on a graphical workspace. Latency should be as low as possible. Two hands have to be recognized simultaneously and at least two gestures (closed/opened hand).
I saw this video of the Persee: Products - Persee Update on Vimeo but the latency looks quite problematic to me. Is the tracking so slow or is the application causing that delay?
If it is because of limited performance of the integrated computer, would an Astra be a better choice?
I like the fact that the Persee wouldnt require computing power from the PC being controlled and also a very minimal communication by LAN or bluetooth would be an option instead of streaming heavy imaging data over USB.
But if the latency is not avoidable we might have to use the Astra?
Another Question regarding Astra:
I read the Astra S is better for lower distances. Does that mean the accuracy of the depth image is better or is that just about the RGB image? For us only the accuracy of the depth image would be crucial. On the other hand a bigger range would be a benefit. Would the Astra S have any advantages in hand tracking at a distance of 1.8 meters compared to the normal Astra? Are there any image/video samples for a comparison of the different outputs?
Thanks a lot in advance!
