i am making a human following robot using kinect. My plan is to use skeleton tracking to make the robot follow and using shirt color to identify the target.

I wonder how could i implement openni and opencv together?

In fact, I haven't use openni with kinect. I use freenect. Maybe you can find necessary information in this website:

If you want to run kinect. You just need to use

roslaunch freenect_launch freenect.launch

Or sometimes , you might need to add authority for kinect's serial.
