Bat echolocation behavior from highspeed 3D video

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


As part of the ChiRoPing research project we have been observing the 3D position and orientation of several different species of bats, as well as making measurements of different aspects of their bodies. The long-term goal is to understand what the bats are doing during echolocation, identification and tracking of prey, so that robot sonar sensors with a comparable level of performance can be developed. We claim that registered highspeed 3D video can expose behavior not observable using conventional or even high speed video sensors.
