Tracking and Image Processing for Behavioral Sciences

If you require a custom image processing or tracking solution that is not already available within Loopy or Hexerei then we can help. We offer customized real-time (>150 fps) 2D and 3D tracking solutions for single and multiple animals in laboratory and natural lighting conditions. We specialise in high-throughput, high-performance image processing and quantification of animal behavior from movies. We give you reliable and robust behavioral data in less time than coding it yourself. For a versatile ready-to-go solution, check out Hexerei for 3D tracking, and Loopy for 2D tracking and analysis.

Virtual Reality for Freely Moving Animals

We have experience building VR systems for freely walking spiders and mice, freely swimming zebrafish, freely walking locusts, and freely flying drosophila. We have constructed setups for some of the most technically challenging model organisms in science, we can customize and build a VR apparatus to help answer your future questions. For more examples of our VR projects see our LocustVR or FishVR case studies.

Custom Experimental Equipment Development

We have experience building custom experimental electronics including real-time sensing and measurement of light, temperature and other experimental factors. We have experience coordinating real-time experiments including synchronizing stimulus with image and other sensor acquisition. If you have a technically challenging assay in mind we offer end-to-end services, from construction to data analysis. For a versatile desktop assay equipped with camera system and environmental monitoring, check out Kastl. If you already have a behavioral assay, and want to add or improve the resolution, frame rate, or reliability of your video recording setup, see our Motif recording system.
