Sample Application:

Fish tracking

Coordinated Movement of Stickleback

In the lab of Prof. Andrea Manica, Dept of Zoology, University of Cambridge, AnTracks is used to investigate coordinated movement of stickleback, and the emergence of leader and follower roles. The location and orientation of each fish in the tank is tracked, and the correlations investigated to build models for coordinated movement.

The trajectories of the two stickleback are displayed in light blue and purple.

Each trajectory has been colored according to timestamp of the respective trajectory point. A correlation between the movement of the two fish can clearly be seen.
