- 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 humans can be used in e-commerce to model clothing products. A customer can produce a model corresponding to his or her body shape, size and look. The model can then try on clothing so that the customer can see what it might look like.
- 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
3 True/False questions
Explain how motion capture contributes to the development of a digital human → 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.
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.
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.
