Abstract

Motion tracking technology in industrial applications is a very useful tool. It can be used to analyze the movements of assembly line workers in order to optimize their tasks or to train new employees or to help design machines for assembly lines. This paper investigates the use of multiple Kinect sensors as a method of motion tracking by simultaneously collecting data from multiple Kinects which are tracking the movements of the same human from different positions. Both the hardware and software which are required to do this are discussed.
