  1. Yes, it includes the Wireless-AC 9560 module, which supports up to 1733Mb/s Wireless-AC communications and Bluetooth 5.1.
  2. This particular system includes a HDD for storage and an Optane Module to accelerate the performance of this HDD. The Optane technology is currently only supported on Windows. You could remove the Optane Module and use the HDD unaccelerated. I believe you can also use the Optane Module as a small (16GB) SSD though I am not sure if possible from Ubuntu. I have no idea what you mean by "ROS".
  3. I have no idea regarding this SDK. @MartyG​: do you know anything about this?

3. The Cubemos Skeleton Tracking SDK software is not provided for free, though it does have a 30 day free trial.


The makers of Nuitrack SDK, the other skeleton tracking software that works with the 400 Series cameras, announced on June 1 2020 the launch of monthly subscriptions for $7.99 instead of annual ones. Nuitrack SDK also has a free trial version, though it only allows it to be used for up to 3 minutes at a time.
