Multimodal control of a robot with a Microsoft Kinect camera



In this project an application was developed that could be used to control the industrial robot KUKA LBR iiwaa 7 R800 with gestures and voice. The sensors for detecting sound and images were provided by a customary Microsoft Kinect v2. The project evaluated what functionalities can be achieved with this technology.

Furthermore the calibration of camera and robot (hand-eye-calibration) needed to be as effortless as effortless as possible.
