Paper Abstract

The Naval Biodynamics Laboratory in New Orleans is engaged in a series of experiments to evaluate the dynamic response of critical anatomical segments. A three-dimensional array of photo-targets attached to a T-plate affixed to the anatomical segment is acquired by at least two cameras, and the kinematic variables defining the linear displacement and orientation of the rigid body are developed from a least-squares algorithm. This paper presents a method for plotting the film coordinates of each camera such that macroscopic errors in the locations of the automatically tracked targets can be easily detected and corrected. Examples of the types of errors found when the method was applied to actual data at the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory will be presented.
