Ants in the Field
Low-Contrast Tracking of Ants in the Field
This example shows the application of AnTracks to detect and track forager ants in the field, as part of ongoing research on ant colony behavior in the lab of Prof. Deborah Gordon, Stanford University. The video data are property of Prof. Deborah M. Gordon, Dept of Biology, Stanford University. Data used with friendly permission.
Because of the low contrast to the soil and the small size of the ants, this is a challenging application where most other tracking software fail.
