2D tracking of free-flying honey bee

2D flight path of a bee. Flight path is from left to right, total flight distance is approx. 2m. A PTZ camera was used to measure the body axis direction precisely. The matchstick symbols are shown only for every second measured position (orig. sampling rate: 50Hz).


Trackit 2D provides position and body angle tracking using a single camera. The system is configurable with various camera types, including pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras that provide the possibility to zoom in on the animal for enhanced spatial resolution and even follow the animal as it moves around! The systems are all real time, allowing an automated control of external software and hardware (e.g. feeders, traps, release mechanisms, displays, sounds, and so forth).
