ActiTrack controls data coming from up to 20 IR frames. It discriminates and analyses frequency and number of IR beam breaks to convert it in a track file that can be analysed later for generating reports. Thus ActiTrack provides much more integrated and precise data in terms of animal activity, position, displacements and rearings than those provided by the SeDaCom software.
The IR actimeter enclosure can be divided into zones of interest (up to 20) using the specific tools provided by Actitrack. Animal trajectories are acquired from real time beam breaks and stored enabling the user to analyze and re-analyse experiments with different zone configurations, associations (user-defined combination of zones) and parameters. Track can be replayed in real-time or by using an "accelerated" (user-defined speed) or "instantaneous" modes. The report cover either the full track or partial sections of time.
All data obtained by Actitrack is expressed in ASCII format and can be easily exported to a wide range of spreadsheets and statistics programs for further analysis. Actitrack can be installed in as many computers as required, and the user will be able to check data, generate reports, print out results and obtain charts for visual presentation.
