--The Kinect v1 measures the depth with the Pattern Projection principle, where
a known infrared pattern is projected into the scene and out of its distortion
the depth is computed. The Kinect v2 contains a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera
and determines the depth by measuring the time emitted light takes from the
camera to the object and back. Therefore, it constantly emits infrared light with
modulated waves and detects the shifted phase of the returning light [17, 18]. -In
the following, we refer to both cameras (Pattern Projection and ToF) as depth
camera
