How it Works

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.
