This article studies the high-speed particle tracking measurement method, aiming to simulate the tracking measurement of high-speed particles by monitoring the splashed debris in the sample container, and measuring the motion speed, motion angle, and sputtering trajectory of the gravel particles. The system consists of 5 ultra high speed pulse cameras, which collect particle images and perform differential and threshold segmentation methods on the images to achieve particle recognition and localization. The particle motion speed is calculated by estimating the particle's position changes between different frames. The experimental results show that the system can achieve tracking of high-speed moving particles, with a spatial positioning accuracy of ± 0.2mm and a measurement error of 10%. This method provides certain theoretical and data support for the tracking and measurement research of high-speed particles.
