LoliTrack is easy-to-use Windows software for behavior analysis of multiple or individual animals based on contrast, e.g. no markers are needed. Use any camera system to record digital video files (.avi) and your own PC for automated tracking and analysis of behavior. Unlike any other software LoliTrack will track up to 24 objects inside the a single arena even if they collide and cross paths and even if the obejcts are unmarked and have exactly the same shape, color and size (see video example here).
Typical applications include behavioral phenotyping in Zebrafish (microtiter plate), rodent assays (maze, open field), schooling fish or insect swarm tracking, midline kinematics (multiple marker tracking), and locomotion analysis of anything from micro-organisms to large adult animals (home cages, aquariums etc).
Free demo software allows you to test if the software will work for your application, or send us your video clip for free advice. We want to make sure that LoliTrack works for your application too. For more video examples click here.
Features: Batch file analysis for multiple trials
Create video file with behavior data overlay
User-defined zones and Points of Interest (PoI)
Save all settings in files, e.g. zones, masks, POIs, thresholds etc.
Remove undesirable objects and areas with mask tool
Calibrate data in metres, cm or millimetres.
Time-stamped data saved in Excel compatible *.txt file
Raw data file with X,Y-positions only
Analysis data file with summary and calculated parameters
Calculated parameters: – Active/Inactive time
– Direction of movement
– Distance moved
– Direction of orientation
– Turning rate
– Time spend in zones
– Number of visits in zones
– Number of contacts to Points of Interest (PoI)
Tracking principle: Operates on the principle of contrast (color or b/w), i.e. the object(s) to be tracked is placed against a contrasting background and the software assigns a x, y coordinate pair to the centroid of each object.
Input video file format: .AVI
PC: min. 8GB RAM and 2-core 2 GHz CPU.
The software performance will depend on video frame rate, image resolution, file length and format. Thus, the minimum PC requirements listed here might not deliver a satisfying performance if working with hi-speed video (>>25 fps), hi-resolution images (>>1.3 MPixel) or very large files (>1 GB).
