I don't know much about infrared waves so I was hoping someone could point me to the right direction..
I'm currently playing around with a Microsoft Kinect v2 sensor which can take depth and infrared images.(the depth image is calculated from the infrared)
I was wondering whether the infrared images can be used to infer information other than the depth.. I know that some materials block out IR and stuff but is it possible to somehow get the probability of the existence of a certain material given an IR image? ( Sorry if I worded it weirdly but I hope you get the drift..)
