What would be the best coursework to understand depth cameras like Kinect and the software written for them? I’ve found some tutorials like this one for Microsoft official Kinect 2, Daniel Shiffman’s “Getting Started with Kinect and Processing,” the great ofBook Computer Vision chapter, and I’ve worked with the Kinect libraries like ofxKinectForWindows2. However, even after completing the courses and using the library, I feel a very shallow understanding of what’s happening. For example, if I’m calibrating the camera… I have no idea what’s actually happening, and if anything goes wrong, I’m completely lost.
Would my best bet be Computer Vision? Photogrammetry? I can’t seem to find any courses that eventually lead to depth cameras. Studying SDK’s in depth? Or am I focusing too much on stuff that can/should be handled by libraries?
