3D motion analysis

Analysis of objects in movement

Optical 3D motion analysis replaces accelerometers and other conventional techniques for measuring displacements and movement. 
3D motion analysis can be used for: 

  • Dynamic behavior of components
  • Drop test
  • Verification of simulation 

When using optical 3D motion analysis, two cameras record a dynamic process like a door slam or an emergency break. Using advanced software, displacements and deformations are calculated and illustrated by vectors.


Point-tracking technology
he technology is based on point-tracking, which means that circular reference points are placed on the object in the spot where a displacement is to be measured. It is the movement of these markers or reference points that the cameras detect. Displacements can thus only be calculated in the selected coordinates.
