Motion Capture for Education

The use of motion capture for education is fairly new but, it presents exciting opportunities for educators and students alike. Our motion capture systems empower schools to provide their students with state-of-the-art technology and training for animation, robotics, biomechanics, and more. Cortex, our motion tracking and editing software, is intuitive and easy to use and integrate into your curriculum. Motion Analysis systems give your institution a competitive edge while offering a first-class educational experience to students. Contact us today to request a free quote.

What is Motion Capture?

Motion capture is the process of tracking and recording the movement of an individual or object to recreate their movements. It utilizes a motion-tracking camera, specially designed markers, and a computer equipped with Cortex software. The markers are placed at key locations of movement on the body, such as joints. The camera tracks these markers and sends the movement data to the computer, where it can be used to render 3D characters or objects.

Motion capture provides many benefits and unlimited potential for education. It’s low-cost and suitable for a wide range of skill levels. Educational materials can be created in an animated form, which can improve engagement in the classroom. Students who are going into the video game or entertainment industry can get a head start using the technology that’s become the industry standard. Motion capture can help students gain a better understanding of biomechanics and ergonomics. It provides essential tools for students to learn about rehabilitation, injuries, or difficulty in movement due to sports activities or congenital issues. Likewise, mocap is useful for education related to robotics, VR, and AR.

Cortex includes integrated tools and additional modules for use in any application. Our systems include high-quality, low-latency mocap cameras and markers.
