Guidelines
Kinect is a motion tracking input device developed by Microsoft. It uses a variety of on-board sensors to efficiently find and track human bodies represented in skeletal models. It was developed primarily to facilitate control of the Xbox 360 gaming console using body movement. Microsoft also released an SDK for Kinect, giving programmers access to both raw data streams and computed tracking data from a connected Kinect. A second version of Kinect was released for Xbox One, bringing various hardware improvements as well as a new and incompatible version of the SDK.

The main objective of this thesis is to determine, whether Kinect may be a better platform for real-time face tracking than regular cameras. A software compatible with both versions of Kinect will be developed that will combine Kinect tracking data with existing face recognition libraries. The software will be used to assess the benefits of tracking data by empirical evalution on collected data.
