Abstract:

This paper describes a three-phase project concerning the watching, analyzing, and describing of motions of a cat in various gaits. All data is based on two 16 mm films of an actual cat moving on a treadmill. In phase 1 the low level issues of tracking key points on the cat from frame to frame are discussed. Phase 2 deals with building and using a graphics tool to analyze the data of phase 1. Phase 3 is a high level discussion of cat locomotion based on the trajectories and movements explored by phase 2.
