Posture Estimation for Screening Design Alternatives by DhaibaHand - Cell Phone Operation - 2006-01-2327
The present paper deals with posture generation and its application to the selection of design alternatives using the DhaibaHand computational hand model. The operating postures used to push buttons are estimated for target points uniformly distributed on the button plane through the partial use of motion capture data. Two representative subjects (large and small) are used to examine the button disposition. The preferable area for button location is extracted by evaluating the generated postures in terms of reachability and posture margin.
