Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: written elaboration and presentation
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 67373 ("Seminar Simulation, capturing and analysis of human motion")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


Selected topics related to the simulation, capturing and analysis of human motion and its applications (e.g., rehabilitation, sport, ergonomy). Topics may come from the areas of, e.g., computer graphics, physics, biomechanics, computer vision, sensor fusion, optimal control and machine learning. Examples are:
  • physics-based simulation of soft tissue (skin, muscles, cloths) and natural human motion
  • extraction of anthropometric parameters from 3D person scans
  • sensor-body calibration for wearable sensors (e.g. inertial measurement units)
  • inertial motion capture
  • modelling, learning and recognition of human motion patterns
