Hi there,

I was wondering if there is any ROS package available for user_detection on a moving platform. The openni tracker does not work properly if the robot itself is moving (it has a lot of false positives).

I do not need to find the skeleton of the user, only his position.

Thank you

Hi, Check if this ( is some help.

Thanks, Karthik

I haven't come across anything like that in the ROS package myself. But i have seen tracking objects in PCL done as given in this you may use the above human detection towards this pcl work and make your own package. Before starting this you may check on the packages built by MIT students which predominantly involve on human interaction, which may directly help you.

Thank you for the link, but here the human is standing still. I need a tracker for when both the human and robot are moving.
