OpenNI 1.5.4: Creating OpenNI Modules


Creating OpenNI Modules

This help document presents a tutorial showing how to build new module OpenNI implementations.

OpenNI is a plug-in system. It defines the interfaces and data flow of common 3D computer vision types.

The OpenNI MPI lets you create new OpenNI modules. An OpenNI module is a shared-library which exports one or more node implementations.

This section presents the necessary steps for creating an OpenNI module.

OpenNI native interface is written in C. However, just as there are C++ wrappers for the API, there are also C++ wrappers for creating modules. Using the C++ wrappers is the easiest way to create a new module, so all further descriptions will assume the use of C++. Creating new modules in C is not covered currently in this documentation.

This tutorial comprises the following major sections. Work through them in the order given.

  1. Defining the Node Topology
  2. Creating a Node Implementation
  3. Creating a Node Exporter
  4. Module Entry Points
  5. Registering the new Module
