Title:

    Magnetic motion capture system measuring movements of hands and a body simultaneously

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    The motion capture (MoCap) has become a premiere technique for measuring the human movements. The MoCap has been used to create computer animation for the cinema and video games, and to measure a dance performance. As for measurement of the hand the various systems exist, but they cannot measure the movement accurately, because the hand moves complicatedly. Hence, we have developed the highly accurate ‘Hand MoCap system’ by using the electromagnetic tracker (LIBERTY™ 16 system, Polhemus) that used small and light receivers [Mitobe et al. 2006].
