# Usage¶

To use our application you can simply launch the main application via:

python left-luggage-detection.py


Note

make sure your kinect is connected to your pc and the power supply otherwise you’ll only be able to control the motor and not the video stream

## Offline Usage¶

You can also test this application using registered video via Fakenect library which is included inside Openkinect.

To record a video:

mkdir directory_record
record directory_record


To use a recorded video you need to specify two environment variables LD_PRELOAD to point to the fakenet lib instead of the freenect one and FAKENECT_PATH that point to the video folder:

LD_PRELOAD="/usr/local/lib64/fakenect/libfreenect.so" FAKENECT_PATH="video/path" python left-luggage-detection.py
