A virtual reality tool to manipulate digital human mannequins for evaluating ergonomics and human factors
This project will develop a new Virtual Reality (VR) tool for the rapid design assessment of environments with digital human mannequins (DHMs).
Building on our extensive experience in the application of biomechanics and VR, we will develop a novel advanced tool and integrated design assurance process, providing Defence with the means to achieve decision superiority in design. This will ensure optimal human-environment interactions within military vessels, leading to maximal crew performance and capability edge within Defence.
The tool will allow designers to view and manipulate a range of anthropometrically scaled DHMs in Virtual Reality to evaluate human fit and efficient operation in physical environments.
