- Digital humans enable manufacturing plants to be developed more quickly and manual workflow to be optimized. They improve worker safety and reduce compensation costs resulting from accidents. Machines and other equipment can be positioned to optimize cycle time and avoid hazards, etc. See 8.8
- A person wears sensors- either a set of acoustic, inertial, LED, magnetic or reflective marker at each joint. Sensors track the position of the markers as the person moves to develop a digital representation of the motion.
- Before a physical prototype- Digital humans allows the design to be optimized for user comfort, visibility and access to controls, that the user population will be able to climb in and out of the vehicle easily and controls and foot pedals are within the reach, that the vehicle can be maintained and the strength required to operate it is within the normal range.
3 True/False questions
Explain how motion capture contributes to the development of a digital human → A person wears sensors- either a set of acoustic, inertial, LED, magnetic or reflective marker at each joint. Sensors track the position of the markers as the person moves to develop a digital representation of the motion.
Discuss how digital humans can enhance human factors research → Digital humans can be used to represent joint resistance, discomfort, reach envelopes and visual fields. They can be used, for example, to measure the impact of clothing on human performance.
Define digital human and motion capture → Digital human - Computer simulation of a variety of mechanical and biological aspects of the human body.
Motion capture- The recording of human and animal movement by any means, for example, by video, magnetic or electro-mechanical devices.
