Hi everybody.. I'm quite new to ROS - well not completely new, i've done some development with ROS and grasp the basics. But i'm completely new to Kinect. I've checked out all the Kinect drivers in ROS, installed them, run them (e.g. rviz ). But I still dont have a complete understanding on how to develop programs for Kinect with ROS, i.e. using the Kinect drivers programmatically. Does anybody know any good programming tutorial for ROS-Kinect? I've searched all over the internet for the last 2 days (or I might have just been looking in the wrong places).
My specific task i'm trying to accomplish is to locate a person in a room (e.g. raising a hand, or something) then start tracking the person - and perhaps following them. I've seen a similar demo of this from MIT's ros package, but I don't see any tutorial. Furthermore, MIT's packages are all from the diamondback distribution, while all my packages are build from electric.
Thank you, everyone.
