Human Motion Simulation Laboratory – Simulating Manipulation of Flexible Material

The Human Motion Simulation Laboratory develops data-grounded models to predict and evaluate realistic human movements. These models can be used by commercially available human computer aided design (CAD) software to enable ergonomic analysis of products and workplaces. Faculty and student investigators from across the University with expertise in anthropometry, biomechanics, ergonomic task analysis, human posture prediction, neural-motor behavior, and statistical analysis work collaboratively to achieve the HUMOSIM research objectives. Major efforts are directed to: Collect extensive and accurate human motion data Create models using innovative statistical techniques Evaluate and prepare models for implementation Demonstrate the application using case studies Present and publish techniques and results
