Kinect V2 Skeleton Tracking

Hello all,

I'm currently working on a project that involves Kinect v2 for Windows. I've successfully installed OpenKinect2 driver as well as iai_kinect2 ROS package. I'm able to see RGB, etc information coming out from kinect2_bridge. However, my end goal is to detect human with skeleton tracking algorithm. Does anyone know any library that can accomplish this? All the ROS libraries I've seen are only compatible with the older version of Kinect.

I'm using ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04 and the sensor is the kinect V2 for Windows.

No solution exists yet, and as far as I'm concerned nothing is planned. I'm currently using a custom made SDK to ROS bridge to obtain skeleton data.

Can u tell me more about your custome sdk? I use kinect v2 and ros-melodic. I also try to use skeleton tracking.

Wow, the thread got revived. The custom SDK uses a proprietary software owned by my previous research center. Unfortunately, it's been 5 years ago now so I cannot really provide any helpful information. However, imagine: 1) a software that pulls data from the Kinect sensor and then 2) broadcasts them as sensor event so ROS can listen to them. Good luck!
