Please complete steps in the Setup section before building your application.
There are some steps that is required before start the detection:
- Make sure to accquire camera permission before staring detection.
GestureInterface.UseExternalTransformfunction if needed.
GestureInterface.Start function to start hand detection.
This function is non-blocking, detection will be started in a background thread.
The function accepts a
GestureOption parameter, which can be used to change
Since modes are not supported on all devices, the option is modified to return what mode is selected in current detection.
The return value of the function indicates if any error occured during the start.
Calling this function when detection is already started is an no-op.
The return value is always
GestureFailure.None, option is modified to return current running mode.
Fetching Detection Result¶
Since detection is running in a background thread, the caller need to fetch detection result periodically. We suggest to fetch results in higher frequency than detection speed based on platform and modes. Fetching results in same speed as rendering is recommended.
Fetching detection can be done with the
The function is blocking until latest results is copied to
The results can be read using the functions described in the next section.
GestureInterface.GetFrameIndex function can be used to check hand detection status or as a hint on fetching the results:
- If the index value is 0, this means detection is starting, no results are ready yet.
- If the index value has increased, new hand results are updated.
- If the index value does not change, this means new hand results are not ready yet, results remains same as the ones before you fetch.
- If the index is negative, this means detection has stopped due to error occurs. You should stop fetching and restart detection.
Detection results do not change until you fetch latest detection result again.
Using Detection Result¶
GestureInterface.GetRight function for left/right hand detection result.
The returned hand results are
GestureResult class which contains gesture type and position information.
Before using gesture type and position, you should first check if left/right hand is visible in the camera.
This can be done using
Gesture type and positions are only meaningful when the hand is valid.
The points are returned in Unity3D coordinate system, i.e. +x is right, +y is up, +z is forward, unit is meter. You may need to convert your coordinate system before use.
