Paper Abstract

Traditional 16mm and 35mm high-speed film-based data analysis is significantly improved with the introduction of a new generation, low-cost and fully integrated rear projection motion analyzer. The X-Y data are digitized and collected by an operator using a hand-held cursor. However, all film handling functions are fully automated under the control of a built-in microprocessor and/or external host computer by way of a bi-directional RS-232 port. A companion PC-based software package integrates the data collection task, minimizes operator stress and provides complete solution data. This new analyzer system provides scientists and engineers with a much faster means of digitizing and greater system accuracy when compared to existing film readers in the field.
