Paper Abstract

The paper contains a description of the principle of operation of a system to measure the position of marked points in a scene. The main application envisaged is in the study of human movement and biomechanics. This system eliminates the need for the time consuming computation involved in tracking particular points from scene to scene. Therefore many more points of interest may be studied than in existing video based systems. The implementation described uses a rotating disc that contains the scanning and sychronising pattern, an optical projection system and light sensors attached to the points of interest and connected to a desktop computer via an interface unit.
