Description

Photographs taken of an event can be useful when analyzing the event. However, photographs can only give limited information about the location of objects if the distance to the objects is not known. We are developing a two camera system that overcomes this limitation. The two cameras are connected so that they will take pictures simultaneously. This system will allow us to determine the location of an object seen by both cameras in three dimensional space. Possible uses for this system include: tracking the movement of flying or falling objects, or objects submerged in liquid. We will be using this system to track the movement of small waterborne organisms.
