Tracking with pixel detectors Medipix

Pixel detector of Medipix type can be used as an "active nuclear emulsion". This way each interacting particle can be identified according to its track. Neutral particles have to be converted to some detectable radiation type. This principle is used also in ATLAS-Medipix project. The track recognition is being implemented into Pixelman software.
