USER Leap Motion

Receive data from a leap motion external device.

Official Leap Motion Docs

The module is organized in five sections :

  • general: global actions and info's
  • hands: deliver hands data
  • palms: deliver palms data
  • fingers: deliver fingers data
  • gestures: deliver gesture data

Each data sections can be Enabled/Disabled to optimize performance and cpu load

About units of data delivered :

  • All positions are normalized, so coordinates go from 0 to 1 inside the interaction box
  • All directions and normals values go from -1 to 1
  • All velocities are in millimeters/seconds

Settings

General section

on

Connect the module to the leap motion.

connected

ON if the connection is confirmed.

zoom

2 modes:

  • one hand: corresponding to the interaction box as the leap provide it to the module.
  • two hands: the interaction box volume is doubled to make two hands tracking easy.

frame id

Frame number of the leap motion, useful to check if we miss some frames.

  • hands id: Id of each hands, it's a unique number identifying each hand and stay the same as long as the hand is tracked.
  • hands num fingers: Number of fingers detected for each hand.

  • spheres pos x: The x position coordinate of the sphere.
  • spheres pos y: The y position coordinate of the sphere.

  • palms pos x: The x position coordinate of the palm.
  • palms pos y: The y position coordinate of the palm.
  • palms pos z: The z position coordinate of the palm.

  • palms nor y: The y normal vector of the palm
  • palms nor z: The z normal vector of the palm

  • palms valid: Validity indicator(0 or 1) for palms parameters provided by the leap motion driver.

Fingers section

See LeapMotion.com : finger and tool models for more info's about data definition.

  • num fingers: Number of total fingers detected (including all hands), can detect up to twenty fingers.
  • enable fingers: Enable the fingers section data tracking, each array of this section will have the size of the number of fingers mentioned below.
  • fingers id: Id of each fingers, it's a unique number identifying each finger and stay the same as long as the finger is tracked.
  • fingers hand id: Id of each fingers hand, it's a unique number indicating each finger's hand and stay the same as long as the finger is tracked.

  • fingers pos x: The x position coordinate of the finger.
  • fingers pos y: The y position coordinate of the finger.
  • fingers pos z: The z position coordinate of the finger.

  • fingers dir x: The x direction vector of the finger.
  • fingers dir y: The y direction vector of the finger.
  • fingers dir z: The z direction vector of the finger.

  • fingers vel x: The x velocity of the finger.
  • fingers vel y: The y velocity of the finger.
  • fingers vel z: The z velocity of the finger.

  • fingers length: The radius (in millimeter) of the finger.

  • fingers is tool: is this finger considered as tool (0 or 1).

  • fingers valid: Validity indicator(0 or 1) for fingers parameters provided by the leap motion driver.

Gestures section

See LeapMotion.com : gestures for more info's about gestures definition.

enable gestures

Enable the gestures data tracking.

gesture

Gesture detected by the leap motion provided in an array.
