Super accurate
Ultra light

Our Body Tracking pose estimation system uses advanced Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. The AI scientists of LightBuzz have cracked the code of skeleton tracking, thus providing desktop-level performance on mobile devices. The best part? We never compromise accuracy. The software correctly tracks the human body in 360 degrees of motion, even at the most challenging poses. As a result, our customers enjoy the same experience on a $2,000 PC and an $800 iPad. And unlike similar systems, LightBuzz works with all major chipsets, including NVIDIA, AMD, Intel, Qualcomm, and Apple Silicon.

A vast family of cameras

Using your phone or laptop camera, you can access the 2D coordinates of each joint in real-time. If you have a depth camera, you also get the 3D coordinates in the physical space! You pick the camera that fits your needs. We do the rest.

LightBuzz Body Tracking Skeleton Model (34 landmarks)

Human-centered AI

Track up to 20 human bodies with 34 joints each. Analyze the human movement in the frontalsagittal, and transverse planes of motion. Support even the most complex poses.

⚡️ Blazing fast

The higher the frame rate, the more responsive your apps will be. By default, you can get an astonishing 60 FPS real-time performance on your iPhone or iPad Pro!

Want more? Use our SDK to record your sessions and store the color, depth, and skeleton data. Then, review the captures using our built-in video player. Play, pause, change speed and explore every angle of the captured motion.

Capture videos at 60 FPS with the LiDAR sensor, 90 FPS with the RealSense camera, or even 200 FPS with an industrial device. Such smooth measurements are ideal for super-fast movements, like golf swings or baseball pitches.

🔐 Privacy. Built-in.

The LightBuzz SDK operates directly on your device, ensuring that your data remains on your computer or phone unless you choose to share it. Our software operates independently without connecting to a server or gathering any data. LightBuzz will never access your data or use them to train our AI models.

NEW! We now offer an additional privacy feature that allows you to hide the faces of users in real-time, should you require further privacy.

👫 Inclusive by design

Our engineers have trained the LightBuzz AI system from scratch, carefully selecting diverse and inclusive datasets: we have considered different body types, skin tones, clothes, and hairstyles. Also, our SDK works with infants, children, and adults.

Motion Analysis ready

Motion Analysis is complex. Building on years of expertise, our engineers have pumped the SDK with everything you need to analyze the human movement: angle calculations, planar rotations, bezier curves. All the Math you need – now accessed with a single line of code.

A virtual gym in your pocket

Want more? The Enterprise version of our SDK comes packed with a virtual gym. It’s automatically analyzing dozens of movements while measuring the number of repetitions! The most popular fitness exercises are included.

Simply put, the LightBuzz Body Tracking SDK allowed us to bring our vision to life. No need to worry about cameras or different tech stacks - LightBuzz has our back. Hands down, the best investment we made.

James KangGrandmaster Fitness

I use the LightBuzz motion tracking software tool in academic projects. The tool is excellent, very accurate, and simple to use. It does not require advanced knowledge, as it has several practical examples. In addition, LightBuzz support is great, responses are very quick and enlightening.

Luiz Rogério ScudelettiSão Paulo State University

I am extremely impressed by the 'plug and play' versatility of the package written by Vangos and his team, that has relieved me of hours upon hours of coding. As a Product Designer I see huge scope for every feature within the package! All in all I couldn't recommend the package more. Outside of the software itself, LightBuzz has been extremely responsive and helpful with any questions I have had. Do yourself a favour and download the package and play around with the kit and see how it inspires you, like it has me.

After reaching out to support, within ONE DAY there was a new version of the asset that had fixed the issue and all was working great!

Super easy to use

There’s a reason developers love our SDK so much. Everything you need is accessible right out of the box. In addition, we provide a common API for all cameras. So, all you need to do is specify the camera you wish to use, and we’re taking care of the rest; no need to re-learn the API of each camera.

// Initialize a sensor
sensor = Sensor.Create(new SensorConfiguration
    SensorType = SensorType.LiDAR,
    Smoothing = 0.5f,
// Access color + depth + IMU + skeleton
FrameData frame = sensor.Update();
byte[] color = frame.ColorData;
ushort[] depth = frame.DepthData;
IMU imu = frame.ImuData;
List<Body> bodies = frame.BodyData;
// Pick the person you need
Body closest = bodies?.Closest();
Body farthest = bodies?.Farthest();
Body left = bodies?.Left();
Body right = bodies?.Right();
// Or, select within a range
List<Body> range = bodies?.InRange(1, 3);
// Calculate angles with 1 line of code!
Joint neck = body.Joints[JointType.Neck];
Joint pelvis = body.Joint[JointType.Pelvis];
float angle = Calculations.Rotation(
    neck.Position3D, pelvis.Position3D,

Frequently asked questions

Can I use it on unlimited projects?

Yes! You can use our SDK for an unlimited number of projects and installations — no matter whether you have a thousand or a million customers. The price remains the same.

Is technical support included?

Affirmative. Our dedicated support team is available within hours (or minutes!) of sending your support request. We provide first-class assistance in using the SDK and deploying your project. No bots. Only humans.

Do I need an Internet connection?

No, you don’t! Our SDK runs offline, ensuring that customers do not require Internet connectivity. There is no need to activate the software for each customer or device. The experience is smooth and effortless. You can focus on creating outstanding apps, while we take care of everything else.

What if I don't renew my license?

Well, we would be sad to see you go. If you decide not to renew your license, your customers will still be able to use your body-tracking apps without interruptions. You won’t be able to deploy new ones.

What programming languages can I use?

Unity3D is a first-class citizen. Additionally, the SDK is available in native C/C++ and managed C#. In case you need support for a different toolkit or technology, just let us know.

What cameras can I use?

The LightBuzz SDK supports the following cameras:

  • USB webcams
  • Apple LiDAR
  • Intel RealSense
  • Orbbec Astra+, Femto, Mega
