Abstract

Publishable synthesis report of project BRPR-CT96-0355
Report reference period: 01.02.1997 to 31.10.1999

Realistic simulation of the human behaviour plays a primary role in modern industrial ergonomics. The approaches commonly used in movement modelling are based on traditional bioinspired strategies, which do not involve the intrinsic variability, due to subjective perception of the contextual quantities.
For these purposes, a data driven approach based on a collection of physical experiments, capable of grasping the natural essence of human movements, has been developed. Motion analysers, artificial neural networks and open CAD environments have been involved to produce a toolset to perform virtual experiments through human motion simulation, fully integrated with a methodology. Results carried out investigating specific industrial scenarios are also presented.
