I am doing a project to do 3D mapping using Kinect 360, if i would want to collect the data from kinect sensor wirelessly using Xbee to MATLAB in my computer, is the Xbee able to transfer the data from kinect to computer? Thanks.

It is but you will first have to get the data from the kinect, you can't do this on an Arduino due to memory restrictions and the fact that the kinect requires a USB host connection.

It might be possible to do this on a Yun because that runs Linux and maybe there is a Linux driver for the kinect.

Hi, actually I am not going to use arduino to process the data. Currently I am collecting the data from kinect to computer through USB, so I plan to transfer the data wirelessly using Xbee with the xbee starter kit only.

But i notice that kinect requires USB 2.0, so i am not sure that XBee is able to transfer at the data rate or not.

It can't, not in real time at least.

So given that this is an Arduino forum what role do you expect the Arduino to have?
