The VU-Kinect block for Simulink streams the color and depth video signals from the Microsoft Kinect sensor into the Simulink environment so that non-developers can access the capabilities of the sensor and leverage Simulink’s powerful tools for image processing and analysis.
Unlike some other Windows-based toolboxes, the VU-Kinect block is based on the open-source libfreenect driver for Linux-based systems. Real-time code, and operation using External Mode is possible, and the system has been successfully tested on Linux PC as well as PandaBoard target hardware.
