- A motion capture session records the movements of the actor, not his or her visual appearance. The captured movements are mapped to a 3D model (human, giant robot) created by a computer artist, to move the model in the same way.
- 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.
- 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.
3 True/False questions
Explain the benefits of using digital humans in developing manufacturing
plants and processes, maintenance and training → 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
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.
Explain how motion capture is used to digitally represent motion → 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.
