Paper Abstract

Two common computer interfaces have been developed for a high-speed video recording system which greatly increases its versatility in data acquisition and analysis. The serial RS-232-C .nd. parallel IEEE-488 interfaces have been implemented on a large number of computer systems, from desktop/portable micros to large main frames, and have been used extensively in laboratory environments. Using these interfaces with the SP2000 Motion Analysis System, the operator is able to remotely control the system and access all the video and ancillary data. Thus, in addition tothe video system's ability to provide instant replay of a recording, a host computer can provide instant data analysis, two features which can make a significant impact on a project's time and cost. Some of the data processing capabilities made possible are pattern recognition, image enhancement, and standard coordinate based analyses (e.g. X/Time, Velocity/Time, Displacement/Time).
