Title

Motion Capture of Fastening Operation Using Wiimotes for Ergonomic Analysis

Abstract

This paper presents an application of a Wii Remote (Wiimote) based, low-cost motion capture system for digital human simulation and ergonomic analysis of a fastening operation. The system includes a low-cost infrared (IR) based motion capture system developed using Wiimotes. A portable stereo vision system was used to capture the operator's movements while performing a fastening operation during the assembly of an aircraft fuselage on the factory floor. IR LEDs mounted on the worker's body served as markers. The captured motion data was used to generate a simulation of the operator's arm movements and to perform ergonomic analysis with the help of digital human modeling software, Siemens Jack.
