Kinect adaptor for Matlab 2013a

Asked by Valeriya

Hi,

I've just downloaded the pre-release of Matlab 2013a with Image Acquisition Toolbox. I am trying to use the Kinect adapter that is described in help. However, when I run info = imaqhwinfo('kinect'); I get the following error:

Error using imaqhwinfo (line 103) Invalid ADAPTOR specified. Type 'imaqhwinfo' for a list of available ADAPTORs.

Indeed, 'Kinect' is not on the list of installed adapters. How can I install it?

Thanks, Valeriya

In order to use this adaptor, you will need to install the Kinect for Windows Runtime v1.6:

This should resolve the issue.

On the main MATLAB window on the toolstrip there is an add-ons button on the very right. Click that and see if you find it there. If not there is a chance it may not be available until the full release.
