Hi All, I have new model of Kinect which was launched in October 2012 (Kinect for windows). I have to work on it. I did try to test it by using "rviz" when I run roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch, it give error which is "No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected". But when I run "lsusb" it just showed "Microsoft Corp.". Can anyone guide me that why its like this? Is it due to unavailability of Kinect driver ? But when I connect the old one that works fine.. Thanks in advance. Regards, Atif

You might be out of luck, It seems currently Kinect for Windows doesn't work with ros, and that openni drivers only work with the Xbox Kinect as per here

I haven't seen any updates to say that someone has been able to get it working.
