【Project Story】Motion Capture for movements in “How to Exercise”
We use the motion capture studio to capture the fitness movements for the application “The way of exercise” (健身道). The high tech optical motion capture system can capture the movement perfectly.
Capturing fitness motion
Optical motion capture systems tend to utilize proprietary video cameras to track the motion of reflective markers (or pulsed LED’s) attached to particular locations of the actor’s body. Single or dual camera systems are suitable for facial capture, while 8 to 16 (or more) camera systems are necessary for full-body capture.
The camera for optical motion capture system
Reflective optical motion capture systems use Infra-red (IR) LED’s mounted around the camera lens, along with IR pass filters placed over the camera lens. Optical motion capture systems based on Pulsed-LED’s measure the Infra-red light emitted by the LED’s rather than light reflected from markers.
Collaborate with Health & Exercise Association R.O.C., “The Way of Exercise” is an application on both android and iOS that teaches people how to workout easily at any where. Whether you want to loss weight or simply want to be healthier, “The Way of Exercise” is the best app for you. The demo version of “The way of exercise” is already online. You can find it on both google play and app store. Just enter the word “健身道” for search then you can find it.
