Major on-site facilities include:
Vicon Motion Systems Optical & High-Speed Video
Motion Measurement System
This state-of-the-art 3D motion capture system includes:
Optical Capture Cameras. 5 MX infra-red optical cameras
that can differentiate partially colliding markers
in real time as well as offline.
- High-speed System Compatibility.
High-speed video camera systems that operate at
speeds up to 2000 frames per second.
- Pattern Tracking. Tracking unique user
specified patterns frame-by frame without markers or
Virtual Point and Unit Vector Calculations. A
point-and-click interface to specify calculations
for complete six degree-of-freedom kinematics.
- Two-dimensional and Three-dimensional Solid
Model Display. Integrated conic sections and
spheroids that permit the user to construct a
realistic solid model display of any animal or human
- Kinetic energy measurements. Integrated
programming capacity for calculating the kinetic
energy of moving bodies and body parts.
