Video Tracking via BehaviorCloud

Analyze movement in any maze or home cage: BehaviorCloud is a unified platform for preclinical research and offers comprehensive video tracking in the cloud.

How does it Work?#

Record or upload video and run automated tracking analysis

Stream or upload video to your account#

Download the BehaviorCloud Camera app on any mobile device and start recording video. View your data in real-time and control trials from any internet-connected computer or from a second mobile device. No extra software needed. You can also upload existing video you have recorded elsewhere.

Run automated video tracking analysis#

Easily draw zones and automatically generate position and activity data such as distance traveled, latency, velocity and time spent in zones. Export tracked videos and activity traces for publication.

Invite collaborators#

Invite colleagues to view or contribute to experiments. Collaborators can contribute to data collection, analysis, or overseeing experiment progress. Set permissions to allow collaborators read only, read/write or admin access. You always control your data.

Track Behavior Anywhere#

Track activity in any maze or cage

Any maze#

Track activity in any maze, including elevated plus maze, open field test, Barnes maze, Y maze, T maze, and place preference chambers. Draw zones and analyze duration, latency, velocity, and more.

Any cage#

Track activity in any cage, including standard home cages and enriched environments. Simply mount a mobile device running the BehaviorCloud Camera app above the cage and start recording.

See how to run video tracking experiments with BehaviorCloud

Watch the demo video to see how easy it is to run video tracking experiments with BehaviorCloud. This video walks through how to record trials using the BehaviorCloud Camera app and how to upload existing video files. It also demonstrates how to automatically analyze animal activity and generate variables like distance traveled, velocity, zone latency, and more!
