Humans are highly subject to biases and inaccuracies when quantifying visual information. For over 15 years we have been developing, and utilizing, imaging technology for automated tracking of large number of animals in groups.
Following this, during my time as a postdoc, I developed a more general tracking tool, icBiovision, that has been used to quantify the movement of a large number of organisms including aphids, termites and locusts.
A video of this in use for our locust work is shown here:. Since starting my lab we have been able to expand our technology through the amazing work of remarkable PhD students and postdocs. Below is a randomly selected individuals in a group of several hundred, showing this capability.
This allows us to obtain highly accurate motion data for large groups for arbitrarily long periods of time. We also automatically calculate the positions of the eyes of each individual, and using raycasting allows us to reconstruct a planar representation of the visual field of each individual.

This has allowed us infer which visual features are employed by individuals when making movement decisions, and to reconstruct the time-varying network of social interactions for free-swimming groups. For further details, including the role of machine learning, see Revealing the structure of social interactions in animal groups. We would like to further enhance our capabilities, including 3D imaging stereo video, lightfield imaging etc.
