    [–] How to make a treadmill automatic by using kinect myhitman47 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago) in kinect

    Wow it's a great idea..

    I was planing to use stepper motor with arduino board, it can handle various speeds. Some way i should get the skeletal data to arduino serial data and calculate the speed of motion (walking/running) with the help of an arduino program, then the motor will rotate according to the calculated speed, all these process should happen realtime. So as the result the treadmill belt will rotat based on our motion & we can use treadmill just like real life walking & running. I don't know this method going to work or not. But after seeing your suggestion i felt like both our methods are almost the same, what do you think ?.

    If i succeed building this, i would also like to make this treadmill omni directional. For an omni directional treadmill i will need to capture motion from two sides (front and side) of the treadmill right ? (two kinects)
