Kinect IMprovement for Egronomics Assessment
Keywords: Biomechanics - Motion analysis - Kinect
Kimea consists in correcting skeleton data delivered by a Microsoft Kinect for ergonomics purposes. Kimea is able to manage most of the occultations that can occur on workstations (real working situations). To this end, Kimea relies on a database of examples/poses organized as a graph, in order to replace unreliable body segment reconstructions by poses that have already been measured on real subjects. The potential pose candidates are used in an optimization framework.
Kimea gets Kinect data as input data (skeleton data) and correct most of measurement errors to carry-out ergonomic assessment at workstation.
