BugBox: Insect Tracking and Fluorescent Imaging Instrument
A dedicated instrument for simultaneous time-lapse IR and fluorescent imaging of insects
Monitor laboratory experiments on ants or other insects right in a laboratory settings
Track individual insects using proprpietary tags and computer vision
Infra-Red imaging for tracking is invisible to many species
Add fluorescent imaging in one or multiple colors (via multiple camera, lighting and filter combinations)
Align images from multiple cameras to a single multi-channel image
Export results as single images, movies and text files with the location of individual insects at every frame
An example of the output from BugBox
Ants are tagged and imaged using an Infra-Red camera (shown in false blue color).
The tagged are analyzed and position and orientation of individual ants is inferred (shown in red).
Fluorescent imaging is overlayed in green color.
Start experiment and analize in real time or reanalize offline.
Show the results during analysis.
