motion capturing

Motion Capture technologies are used to record the positions of multibody, especially biomechanical, systems which form as inputs at various levels to improve the simulation quality. The recorded motion can be used to guide a multibody dynamics simulation or improve the model-setup by performing parameter identification.

Das Verbundprojekt DYMARA hat die Entwicklung eines innovativen digitalen Menschmodells (Manikins) mit  detaillierter Modellierung der Skelettmuskulatur und schnellen numerischen Algorithmen zum Ziel. Mit diesem Manikin soll es möglich werden, den Menschen simulationsgestützt auf optimale Weise in sein Arbeitsumfeld zu integrieren und Ermüdungen, Erkrankungen sowie Unfälle am Arbeitsplatz zu vermeiden. Neben diesen ergonomischen Gesichtspunkten soll das Menschmodell auch zur Therapieplanung im m…

The goal of this project is to apply techniques of biomechanics and optimal control to generate realistic human-like motions of the DHM from generic working instructions like for example move a box from A to B. Such a model would enable the engineers to take into account physical workloads and reachability issues in virtual assembly planning.

The digital human is modeled as a biomechanical multibody system with muscles as actuators. The motions of the DHM for specific working…
