classification should be a Motion in One Dimension instead :)

accessible from within tracker under open the OSP Digital Library.
Awesome feature

added kinematics model for bouncing ball

in case you are wondering how to create a kinematic model for this case,

choose kinematics model
add into y
    y = if (t < 0.68, -4.781*t^2+0.124*t+0.001, if(t < 1.48,-5.117*t^2+10.989*t-7.147,if(t < 2.04,-4.855*t^2+17.059*t-16.669,if(t < 2.44,-4.886*t^2+21.867*t-26.337,if(t < 2.78,-4.174*t^2+21.682*t-30.138,0)))))

all the coefficients of this model are read off from the data analysis coefficients from parabola fit
y = a*t^2+b*t+c

the source trk edited with the new model can be download here
