In cooperation with FalCon GmbH we develop
the program system FalCon etra.
The software package FalCon etra offers the following functions especially adapted to the requirements of the crash and safety divisions in automotive industry:
Set up and control high-speed cameras and download images
Postprocess images adaptively and create AVI sequences
View AVIs and measurement graphs synchronously with respect to time
Track markers in sequences applying precise automatic measuring methods
Measure geometric features with graphical tools
Measure automatically airbag outlines
Calibrate image measurement data (2D and 3D)
Apply quality assurance by camera calibration
Analysis System for Image Sequences:
The FalCon MovXact module allows you to precisely analyze image sequences using the methods of 2D image measurement technology. In addition to robust and automatic marker tracking task-specific calibration and processing of measurement results are supported. Measurement graphs and individual measurement values are displayed to fit the image data precisely, are shown numerically, and are written to standardized file formats.The program interface combines typical work steps in clearly designed dialogs enabling the user can evaluate both series tests and special tests quickly, reproducibly and accurately.
Analysis of Airbag Sequences:
MovBag extracts outlines from airbag test scenes as contour graphs. From these outlines specific measurement values, e.g. maximum expansion, can be derived. Similar to MovXact a wide range of options selecting the coordinate system for spatial calibration is featured. Comprehensive settings support you in quickly creating concise reports.
