Study on Error Compensation of Human Motion Analysis System


Article Preview

Human motion capture system based on a new kind of error compensation technology was developed and used this to assess human motion. On the basis of three-dimensional reconstruction and some essential factors influencing on the measurement accuracy, the measurement error theory and the modified and improved human motion analysis system was established. The experimental data indicate that the measurement precision of the modified and improved system is more precise than the original system on human motion measurement and capturing.
