Microsoft Releases Kinect Services for Robots!

Kinect Services for Microsoft’s Robotics Developer Studio 2008 R3 provides sample services that use the Kinect for Windows SDK to allow access to the Depth and RGB data from a Kinect sensor.

In addition to a service for a real Kinect, there is also a service for a simulated Kinect that works with the RDS simulator. A sample application is included that shows how to use a Kinect on a simulated robot to wander around and avoid obstacles.
