NEWS

  • (31.01.2018) Several datasets are now available. Feel free to use this data for evaluation purposes in your scientific work. If you use our data, please be sure to cite the associated publication.
  • (28.11.2016) An updated version of the standalone FIMTrack program for Mac OS X (X64; i5/i7) is now available.
  • (19.08.2016) There may be are some problems regarding the standalone version of FIMTrack and Mac OS X 10.10 and 10.11. However, you could try to build FIMTrack from source by following the instructions provided at GitHub or you could try the Windows version.
  • (04.02.2016) Second update of the recommended Mac OS and Windows versions. Several Bugs are removed. OpenCV is updated to version 2.4.11 and the UI uses now Qt 5.5.1.
  • (24.09.2014) Recommended Mac OS and Windows version are updated. Several Bugs are removed and new features are added.
  • (06.06.2014) Mac OS versions are precompiled for Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks) only because of an incompatibility of Qt (v.4) and C++11 in older Mac OS systems.
  • (06.06.2014) New Larva tap added to the results viewer for basic plotting. Larva tab is integrated into Windows and Mac OS 10.9 i5/i7 version. Plots in the larva tab uses QCustomPlot. The manual will be updated soon.

LCD2A

The collision database (called Larvae Collision Dataset 2 Animals; short: LCD2A) contains 1352 image sequences with approximately 159300 individual images resulting from an interaction analysis (collisions) experiment of Drosophila larvae. The images were acquired by utilizing the FIM2c setup. For further information please refer to
