Nature Communications, in press.
In our paper, we describe a novel integrated hardware and software system for pose tracking in freely moving rhesus macaques. We use 64 carefully placed machine vision cameras to generate a 13-point stick model of our subjects. Our system relies on a large library of hand-annotated images (>1M images), and a deep learning engine for predictive inference.
