Equipement d'Excellence - Kinovis

The Kinovis project has been granted 2 million Euros by the French government within the "Equipement d'Excellence 2012" call for proposals. Kinovis is a collaboration between Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes and the University Joseph Fourier and is lead by the Morpheo team. This equipment project will implement 2 acquisition platforms for the capture and the analysis of moving animals and humans. At Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes a large platform equipped with 50 cameras will be set up. This platform will be used to capture large and complex scenes, e.g. multiple moving humans. At the Laboratory of Anatomy of Grenoble Hospital (LADAF - UJF), a dual Xray imaging system will be installed, coupled with a multiple views camera system, with the objective to investigate how the motion of laboratory animals such as mice and complex articulation such as hands, knees or feet for humans, relates to their anatomical structures.
