Environment

Minimum space requirements for depth sensor configurations depend on sensor model and number of sensors:

Configuration Azure Kinect (WFOV mode) Azure Kinect (NFOV mode)
Kinect 2 (Kinect for Xbox One)
1st gen. Depth Sensors
Orbbec Astra (Pro)
Single Depth Sensor

7 by 5 feet = 2 by 1.5 meters

8 by 5 feet = 2.5 by 1.5 meters

10 by 10 feet = 3 by 3 meters

2 Depth Sensors
(90-degrees config.)

7 by 7 feet = 2 by 2 meters

8 by 8 feet = 2.5 by 2.5 meters

10 by 10 feet = 3 by 3 meters

2 Depth Sensors
(180-degrees config.)

12 by 7 feet = 3.5 by 2 meters

16 by 8 feet = 5 by 2.5 meters

20 by 10 feet = 6 by 3 meters

3+ Depth Sensors

12 by 12 feet = 3.5 by 3.5 meters

16 by 16 feet = 5 by 5 meters

20 by 20 feet = 6 by 6 meters

Maximum capture area is about 7 by 7 feet ( = 2 by 2 meters), for all sensor models and configurations.

The pictures below will help you to understand possible capture area and required space. Dimensions are different for Azure Kinect, Kinect 2 (Kinect for Xbox One) and 1st gen. depth sensors due to different field of view.

Azure Kinect in NFOV mode and Kinect 2 for Windows (Kinect for Xbox One)

Kinect 2 (Kinect for Xbox One) sensors and Azure Kinect sensors in NFOV mode (narrow-view mode) have very close view angles (less than Azure Kinect in WFOV mode, but greater than 1st gen. depth sensors and Orbbec Astra):

Azure Kinect in WFOV mode

Wide-view mode (WFOV mode) of Azure Kinect has extremely wide view angle:

Note: But please be aware that quality of depth map is better in narrow-view mode (NFOV mode). For this reason, if you have enough space, it is recommended to use NFOV mode for Azure Kinect sensors.

First Generation Depth Sensor or Orbbec Astra (Pro)

If you're using outdated 1st generation depth sensor like Kinect v1 or Orbbec Astra (Pro) sensor which is almost the same as 1st gen. depth sensor:
