Zoology

Capuchin monkey

Overview

Zoologists often need to make detailed observations in the field or laboratory, recording behaviour, activity and movement in a range of species from nematodes to primates.
Tracksys provide a range of behavioural measurement systems and recording equipment.

The Observer XT

The Observer XT

A complete system to collect, analyse and present observational data, be it human or animal, live or from video. User-friendly, flexible, with the ability to integrate and analyse other data streams, The Observer XT is the perfect hub for many researchers across a variety of disciplines, such as: psychology; zoology; pharmacology; education and training.

Viso for Animal

Viso for Animal

Schedule and make long-duration video recordings, using multiple cameras, to generate movies for easy analysis.

EthoVision XT

EthoVision XT

EthoVision XT software is the most widely published and comprehensive video tracking software, being highly flexible for use with virtually any organism in any arena. Features include marker-less tracking of groups, automatic experimental control and the most powerful data selection and analysis features on the market.

Remote Site

Remote Site

For filming at remote locations where mains power is not available, regular access is difficult, activity is sporadic and / or nocturnal.
Our remote-site filming systems are custom-built to match your requirements whether you're filming bats, badgers, foxes or early-morning joggers!

Simi Motion

Simi Motion

Motion analysis of human, animal and mechanical devices in 2 & 3D. Measure angles, accelerations, forces and distances using automatic tracking of as many points as you need.
Integrate motion capture with other devices such as forceplates & EMG. Visualise results in tables, graphs, stick figure overlays and as sequences of images. Automatically calculate and export a range of statistics from raw or filtered data.
