 Abstract
In this paper, we propose a locomotor evaluation System for mouse based on continuous shooting images. In the field of veterinary medicine and animal studies are subjected to using the mouse for the quality of human life. In particular, during the experiments using the artificially created mice injury, through a variety of scoring and a lot of experiments to measure the extent of recovery from the injury. The traditional method of measuring the quantity of exercise while in this experiment was made of a method for directly observing person. The proposed system performs the continuous shooting per unit of time specified by the movement of the mouse is extracted from a continuous image shooting with the outline of a mouse point cloud. And using the extracted point cloud to extract again the inner contour of the body of the mouse. So using the new point cloud obtained its center, Then, using the center point calculated by accumulating the distance between two points on locomotor evaluation system design and implement to obtain the total distance the mouse moves over a unit of time.
