Paper Abstract

Lightweight targets mounted on the head and neck of human volunteers are photographed by high-speed cameras during impact acceleration tests. The targets must be capable of being tracked through a wide angular motion by at least two cameras to obtain three-dimens-ional displacement and orientation. Because the targets are tracked and digitized by a computerized photodigitizer, their pattern must be selected to maximize recognition and minimize crossover confusion. This pater discusses the target construction, orientation on the accelerometer mount, pattern selection, and paint scheme.
