Human motion analysis based on human pose estimation

Master thesis proposal


Virtual Manufacturing is a supplier of lean-based production development services. We believe in and are willing to take on the challenge of combining technology, methods and hard work around production development in order to achieve results.


Problem description

Ergonomics in within assembly is always in need of improvement. Human pose estimation is used in many different areas, gaming and safety for instance. Virtual Manufacturing uses Avix for analysing assembly processes and to create work instructions. Avix can also be used to evaluate ergonomics, but values for different movements must be added manually. Human pose estimation could be a way to automatically set ergonomic points to the analysis.


Research question 1: How can data be transferred from a human pose estimation system to Avix?

Research question 2: Is the data to be trusted or is it more accurate to make it manually?
