Abstract:

In this paper we present the evaluation results for estimating the area of detection as well as the rotation accuracy of two versions of the face tracking system of the Microsoft Kinect sensor. The tested sensors are the Kinect for Windows V1 and V2 sensors in the use with the respective Software Development Kit. The tests were performed using an artificial head which was moved along a grid. The aim of this work is to prove and extend the manufacturer's data regarding the technical specifications for the particular device. Results show that the Kinect for Windows V2 provides a greater area of detection as well as a higher head rotation accuracy than its previous version, the Kinect V1.
