Re: Does realsense d435 support face gesture recognition

At present, the RealSense SDK 2.0 needs to be combined with other software platforms such as OpenCV in order to achieve features such as face recognition. SDK 2.0 is a continually evolving product though, so it is possible that a more user-friendly 'middleware' solution from a developer may emerge at some point. In the meantime, OpenCv would be your best option for integrating face detection into your D435 project.

This discussion may be of interest to you:

SDK 2.0's Unity support is also in an early stage. At the moment, its main feature is to stream textures into Unity using the camera. Other features are sure to be added as SDK 2.0's development progresses.

Re: Does realsense d435 support face gesture recognition

OpenCV face detection, or ROS software that incorporates OpenCV face detection, is currently the most reliable means of performing face-related activities with the D435.

There is a program called TouchDesigner that can be used to integrate RealSense face tracking into an application with an easy user interface. I believe it only has finger-based gestures though, and it was designed for previous generations of RealSense camera. So it may not work with the D435 model, but it least has a free non-commercial version to download so that you can try it without losing money.

Re: Does realsense d435 support face gesture recognition

The Unity page that I linked to provides details on how to do background segmentation via a script called AlignImages. The page says: "An example usage of this script is to perform background segmentation between depth and color images by turning each colored pixel that is not within the given range into a grayscale pixel."
