The Intel® RealSense™ SDK has been discontinued. No ongoing support or updates will be available.
If you've used the Food Network* hands free navigation provided by the Intel® RealSense™ Experience for Web Browsers you've seen how easy no-touch navigation can be added.
Intel has published the Intel® RealSense™ Navigation Library to make it easy to control web applications via gestures and voice commands.
The sample code provides an interface to the Intel® RealSense™ SDK for Web and includes code to:
- Query if the system is Intel RealSense technology-capable and up to date (has runtime and DCM) & query for supported web browser.
- Play/pause a video or select hyperlinks and other page elements using gestures (pinch, hover, tap) or voice commands.
- Add custom Commands ("Hello" and "monkey") to the default dictionary list of “page up”, “page down”, “scroll up” and “scroll down”.
- Add custom Alerts ("woohoo" and "you said something").
Browsers listed for support are Chrome*, Firefox* and Internet Explorer* (11 and up); but like everything else in the code, can be easily expanded.
The sample code performs these basic steps:
- Run dependency checks
- Create an instance of the navigation library and a reference to the content object.
- Add a user defined element and its callback for the given event (tap gesture).
- Define the list of commands (in addition to the defaults) and a callback.
- Initialize the navigation library (create the navigation elements for scrolling and initialize the gesture and speech modules of the Intel RealSense SDK.
Download the libraries and sample code from GitHub*.
For information on available gestures and languages, see:
- Design Guidelines for the Intel RealSense User Facing Camera
- Speech support for this version is limited to English.
Note: This is based on early versions of the Intel RealSense for Web, and may be subject to change before final release.
