Photogrammetry affords the only noncontact means of providing unambiguous six-degree-of- freedom estimates for rigid body motion analysis. Video technology enables convenient off- the-shelf capability for obtaining and storing image data at frame (30 Hz) or field (60 Hz) rates. Videometry combines these technologies with frame capture capability accessible to PCs to allow unavailable measurements critical to the study of rigid body dynamics. To effectively utilize this capability, however, some means of editing, post processing, and sorting substantial amounts of time coded video data is required. This paper discusses a prototype motion analysis system built around PC and video disk technology, which is proving useful in exploring applications of these concepts to rigid body tracking and deformation analysis. Calibration issues and user interactive software development associated with this project will be discussed, as will examples of measurement projects and data reduction.
