Cross-Validation of an Infrared Motion Capture System and an Electromechanical Motion Capture Device 2007-01-2475
The current research conducted a cross-validation between an infrared motion capture system and an electromechanical motion capture device. No differences were found between the motion capture methods in shoulder and elbow angles. However, differences were found between the motion capture methods on distances of hand movements and actor location in space. Results of the current study indicate electromechanical motion capture devices are too inaccurate to use for validating digital human models unless the ultimate application of the model does not require millimeter accuracy or an absolute location in space. If one is primarily interested in joint angles, and distances are secondary, an electromechanical device is acceptable.
