Smart 3.0 is the latest release of the SMART video tracking system, featuring the most flexible and easy-to-learn software for the automated evaluation of behavior in the widest range of pre-clinical and neuroscience applications:

smart30_logo.gifACTIVITY & EXPLORATION:
- Locomotor Activity, Novel Object Test, Cycling Behavior
- Open-Field, Elevated-Plus Maze, O-Maze, Black And White Test
- Forced-Swimming Test, Tail-Suspension Test
- Water Maze, Radial Maze, T And Y Maze, Fear Conditioning, Object Recognition Test
- Conditioned Place Preference, Odor Place Preference
- Resident Test
- Larvae Tracking - Place Preference Test, etc...

Utilizing an advanced image analysis, SMART 3.0 allows the recording of activity, trajectories, events, social interactions, and global activity of laboratory animals (rodents, rats, mice...) - even under extreme conditions (low-lighting, great similarity between the subjects and the scenario, etc.). SMART 3.0 provides users the versatility of a modular system with the capabilities of a broadband package. Our enhanced data analysis includes customizable data reports, with the possibility of creating outstanding reports based on our new advanced 2D and 3D activity map tool, as well as zone transition lists and events list reports with time evolution and distribution of occurrences. The SMART 3.0 system allows you to perform complete advanced calculations for unlimited behavioral paradigms: time/distance/entries in zones, average speed, alternation triplet, Whishaw’s error, mean directionality, parallel index, turning tendency...

SMART 3.0 was developed with the daily experimental process in mind - easy-to-use interface, highly flexible structure fitting the most applications and budgets. Advanced features ensure reliable data and increased productivity, saving valuable time and resources. SMART 3.0 emphasizes flexibility, productivity and simplicity - just add your desired settings, SMART 3.0 will do the rest. Simply powerful.
