"Towards Using Inertial-Based Motion Capture Systems for Ergonomic Assessments" presented by Howard Chen, PhD candidate in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Iowa Abstract: Inertial-based motion capture systems can unobtrusively capture human motion without being confined to a laboratory environment. However, the accuracy of these devices can be significantly affected by a variety of factors. This talk will focus on the application of inertial-based motion capture systems within the context of occupational ergonomics and potential methods to increase measurement accuracy.  Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events.
