VisMouse is VisMod's reluctant mascot. Pictured
here soon after capture, VisMouse stares defiantly into the camera.
As a service to the vision research community, we've compiled some
QuickTime video segments of the mouse moving about its confines. We hope
the following data sets provide a means of comparing results between the
various groups working on Mouse Understanding.
The first file, vismouse1.mov, is a 2.5MB, 318
frame sequence showing the mouse from the side. Because of self-occlusion
this sequence presents a challenge for those interested in estimation of
3-D mouse pose.
The second file, vismouse.01fps.mov,
is an 2.7MB, 300 frame sequence showing the activity of the mouse over a
period of about 5 minutes. Shot from above, it presents a dark mouse
against a light background, and is ideal for those interested in mouse tracking, or remote rodent biometry .
Soon after this video was collected, VisMouse was liberated by Valerie, of
the Rodent Liberation Front. It was released to the questionably greener
pastures of the east campus tennis courts. Luckily, no researchers were
harmed during the violent rescue operation.
