Abstract [en]

Motion Capture solutions are very expensive and Digital Human Model simulations are time consuming. Off the shelf solutions like Kinect show potential as a cheaper and more flexible method. By using both Kinect and DHM tools together, physical measurements can be produced and analyzed. This study was an investigation on how Motion Capture Technology can be used as an ergonomic assessment tool in the product development process of truck cabs. A literature study to assess relevant methods and tools led to the testing of several 3D camera and 3D manikin solutions. The results showed that the Kinect could be used together with IMMA software to measure truck driver’s motions outside of the cab. This included the use of ergonomic assessment tools. Presently, the technology is limited and the software needs to be developed further but it shows much potential.
