Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: written elaboration and presentation
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 67383 ("Project Simulation, Capturing and Analysis of Human Motion")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.


Research, design, implementation and evaluation of algorithms and methods for simulating, capturing and analyzing human motion (e.g. in the area of computer graphics, physics, biomechanics, computer vision, sensor fusion, optimal control, machine learning) for applications in, e.g., rehabilitation, sport and ergonomy. Example topics may include: 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.
