A simple demonstration setup illustrated that the plenoptic imaging setup is capable of recognizing the particle position in 3D accurately enough for particle tracking velocimetry.
Single-camera, three-dimensional particle tracking velocimetry.
As an extension of flow visualization, particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) determines particles' trajectories and velocities by capturing and analyzing each particle image to locate its center and connecting image tracks (possibly multiple exposures) (Adrian 1996a), therefore offering an approach to investigate Lagrangian characteristics of fluid motion (Agui and Jimenez 1987; Virant and Dracos 1997; Cenedese and Querzoli 1997).

The low image density limit corresponds to particle tracking or PSV (sometimes called low-density PIV mode [Adrian 1991]; a synonym is particle tracking velocimetry [PTV]).
