Thesis: Developing a framework for motion data synthesis
From a classical marker-based motion capture system (MoCap) you obtain the coordinates of placed markers, which are used to establish a biomechanical model. However, information of the subject’s circumferences (silhouette) and surface effects is not provided, which is crucial in case of surface attached sensor synthesis. New digital modelling techniques can help to approximate subject’s silhouette based on the marker coordinates and allow a more realistic synthesis performance.
Extend the existing framework from real Motion Capture data to surface shape models while performing Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s), developed at the chair. Use 3D modeling techniques (blender), automatic human body rigging and personalized shape models to synthesise different sensor signals in order to evaluate sensor placement effects.
