Rapid generation of custom avatars using depth cameras
Recent developments in depth - camera technology have enabled these low - cost tools to be used as body scanners. We present a simple software and hardware system using two Microsoft Kinect sensors that can generate an 3D avatar closely matching the body dimensions of an individual in about 15...
A method for determining the vehicle-to-ground contact load during laboratory-based rollover tests
Many rollover safety researches have been conducted experimentally and analytically to investigate the underlying causes of vehicle accidents and develop rollover test procedures and test methodologies to help understand the nature of rollover crash events. In addition, electronic and/or mechanical...
Anthropometric and postural variability: limitations of the boundary manikin appraoch
Human figure models are commonly used to facilitate ergonomic assessments of vehicle driver stations and other workplaces. One routine method of workstation assessment is to conduct a suite of ergonomic analyses using a family of boundary manikins, chosen to represent a range of anthropometric...
Improved head restraint design for safety and compliance
