Post subject:  Can you use other depth sensors besides the Kinnect 2.0?

Hi there, I'm new here and I'm trying to figure everything I can about I PI before I buy.
Today I am wondering, can you use ANY depth sensor at all with I PI or does it specifically have to be the Kinnect 2.0?
I'd like to know because I have an investor willing to buy me all the equipment I need for my project no mater the price and I want to get the best depth sensors I can instead of just settling with an ok sensor.
Thanks for the help!

Love 'n' Peace,

Yomashi

Hi
iPi software supports several models of depth sensors which are listed in the docs
http://docs.ipisoft.com/Depth_Sensors_Comparison
Kinect v2 is still the best one in terms of quality and accuracy. Its main downside is that only one sensor can be connected to a single PC. So if you plan to use multiple sensors you need a separate PC/laptop for each one and use distributed recording.

If you're looking for the best possible results you can achieve with iPI then also consider a color cameras option. You can get more accurate results and bigger capture area than with depth sensors. However, there are some downsides as well.
