A Real-Time Anatomical Converter for Human Motion Capture

Molet, T. and Boulic, R. and Thalmann, D.


Abstract: There are many possible ways of identifying the posture of a human character from a set of known positions. These methods differ in subtle but important ways. We propose an alternative method to the jacobian-based Inverse Kinematics, one which allows for simple calibration, allows for sensors slippage, and can take advantage of knowledge of the type of motion being performed. This approach gives real-time conversion of magnetic sensors measurements into human anatomical rotations. Our converter is used in a wide range of applications from real time applications to animation design. It provides a useful complement to the traditional keyframe editing software.
