Automobile crash tests are filmed in order to demonstrate the resistance of the vehicles and the safety guaranteed to the passengers. The conventional analysis of the high speed films works by manual measurement of specified markers in each frame. In cooperation with the automobile industry the computer system MOTION was designed which automizes all steps necessary for generation of calibrated trajectories. It provides all hardware features for scanning, displaying and storage of image sequences as well as an extensive software package with an user interface adapted to the task. The robustness, accuracy and reproducibility of the evaluated results is achieved by a new developed tracking algorithm based on a special marker type.
