3D animal tracking system

Apparatus-software system EthoStudio has been developed in order to obtain reliable and repeatable results in behaviour experiments.

System features

Any animal color on any backgound

Our system is able to trace an animal of any color on any backgound

Complex background support

The tracking on complex background

Light is no more needed

Can detect the animal in complete darkness

No callibration needed

All measurend parameters are in physical units

 

System components

 

Stands

For standardized settings of experiments

Measured parameters

The following indicators are calculated for each frame and each animal from the raw sensor data :

IndicatorDaescriptionUnits
X,Y,ZCoordinates in 3D spacemm
SquareAnimal projection squaremm^2
HeightShoulder heightmm
ActivityEnergy, spent on animal movementmm^2
Density mapAllows to measure spatial preference%

The obtained indicators enable scientists to calculate animal behaviour during a specific experiment.
