Por: FutureLearn . en: , ,

Learn about how to record, visualize, and analyze human body motion.

This online course from the University of Oslo is for everyone interested in human motion capture. You’ll start by learning the basics of human anatomy and biomechanics. Then we’ll move on to setting up, calibrating and recording with an infrared optical motion capture system. Some other sensing technologies will also be presented, including accelerometers, muscle sensors, and video recordings. Examples will be given of how such systems are used in various types of music research. Finally, you’ll learn about some of the ethical and legal challenges of working with human motion capture.
