3D tracking

Flying or swimming animals often move in 3D space. Using 2 cameras, Trackit computes the 3D coordinate, which has the following advantages over using a singe camera to obtain 2D data:

  • The explanatory power of the data is increased
  • The data analysis is simpler
  • The system calibration is as simple as using a single camera
  • Unconstrained camera locations does not complicate the setup significantly
  • Several animals can be tracked at the same time, allowing groups of animals to be individually tracked at the same time. This is particularly relevant to animals that perform swarming or shoaling behaviour.
