Sensor Architecture

With the term “Sensor” we refer to a wide range of input components to the middleware. Technically a “sensor” ranges from the hardware device (e.g. camera) to high-level processing entities that extract semantically meaningful information from the physical sensing device (see figure at bottom).

Currently the following sensors are supported:

  • Kinect (version 1 and 2)
  • Leap Motion
  • AnTS Overheard tracking
  • Vicon motion capture
  • All native YARP devices (serial, video, audio, etc)
  • Sensor data from iOS devices
