- 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
- 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.
- There can be more design iterations in less time. This results in higher product quality, which meets human requirements more accurately. Digital prototypes are cheaper to produce than physical prototypes. Products are safer as a result of more thorough analysis of safety aspects.
3 True/False questions
Explain how motion capture is used to digitally represent motion → Motion capture can reduce the cost of animation, which otherwise requires the animator to draw either each frame or key frames that are then interpolated. Motion capture saves time and creates more natural movements than manual animation, but is limited to motions that are anatomically possible. Examples are animated super-hero and martial arts.
Explain how digital humans enable the consideration of human factors early in the design cycle → 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.
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.
