Abstract This research aims to develop a high speed 3D motion capture system with low cost and high precision. The high speed motion capture system consists of dual-camera and high speed flash lighting LED arrays. The images of high speed motion object in different positions were captured in one shot through the high speed flash lighting LED arrays. Dual-camera provides two different visual angles of images of moving object. The moving path, velocity and angular velocity of object can be found by the image processing measurement technology. In this paper, the proposed high speed motion capture system was successfully applied to measure the flying speed, angular velocity and flying angle of a flying golf ball.
