Intelligently Moving Manikin
In modern industry, the number of manual tasks is still high, which leads to an increasing demand for the involvement of humans in simulation processes to reduce physical prototypes and obtain validated results at an early stage of the product development process.Download
The biomechanical model consists of 82 bone segments connected by joints, which means in total 162 degrees of freedom. The model remains in balance at all times.
The posture is calculated automatically by setting the manikin boundary conditions such as grasping or looking.
This means a fast and efficient way to take the human being into account in digital processes.
The software ensures collision-free assembly movements and the analysis of reachability and assembly feasibility. Depending on the task, the movement strategy is adjusted automatically.
In this tool the mountability of objects as well as flexible objects by humans is examined.
An antrhopometric system is not only used to validate the characteristics of one human being, but a result can be made over a complete variance of a population.
The simple simulation setup remains the same and can be extended by slight modifications.
Automatic ergonomic evaluation
Visibilty within IMMA consists of view cones and vision cameras. This helps the user to check for assembly tasks where a free look is necessary and provides results of obstacles which could lead to unsolved assembly or disassembly tasks.
