Autism Spectrum Disorders Research
We built three synchronous six-camera systems capable of collecting imagery, as well as audio, from small classrooms to study stimulus responses in autistic children in their learning environment. The gigE cameras, with power over Ethernet capability, can be installed over 100 feet away from the recording unit. This flexibility and easy cabling gives the team many installation options. Lite compression of the video allows for longer recordings. This system also features remote frame tagging capabilities. The specialist, in the room with the child, can use a small hand-held remote IR transmitter to tag the video. The tag is used for quick recall while reviewing data to find the incident of interest. This novel non-intrusive marking system reduces additional stimulus while aiding the research.
