Experiments for object tracking
I use video analysis very often in my physics classes. I currently use the software Tracker. I introduce the method mostly in kinematics when the movement is too fast to measure it in other ways easily.
When the students are familiar with the method I go further.
Here are a few examples I have done in my classes.

- track the motion of real objects like cars, rollercoasters, trams, bikes, etc. - Determination of the type of movement and the parameters of the movement

- free fall - measurement of the gravitational acceleration
- falling objects with air friction (paper cones) - measurement the air resistance
- any kind of projectile motion, especially to show the superposition of the motion in two dimensions and determine the parameters

- conservation of momentum - collision experiments to measure the conservation of momentum and energy

If it is of interest to you, I can provide you with some examples of jobs I have used to give you an idea of the implementation and requirements. (in german)

It would be great if such a function would become part of phyphox. This could make the process of analysis much easier. However, the implementation of a good operation on mobile devices is certainly a challenge.
