ShuttleSoft is real-time video tracking software for use with our aquatic shuttle box systems for automated preference/avoidance behavior measurements in fish or inverts. Inside an experimental tank the animal can freely "shuttle" between two sub compartments with opposite acting environmental controls (e.g. temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH, CO2), or you can set up two different (constant) levels in the two tank compartments independent of fish behavior for exposure/avoidance/choice tests.
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.
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.
– 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)
– Inter Individual Distance (≤ 3 individuals)
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.
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).
