MAVO Project »Ergo-dynamic Moving Manikin with Cognitve Control«

Innovative digital human modeling for virtual assembly planning and ergonomic workplace design

The modelling and efficient simulation of human motions for applications in the fields of ergonomics, medicine and computer graphics is a big challenge. Complex movements will be handled by humans in the future as well. We deal with the question how to develop the physically challenging assembly as ergonomic as possible.

Six Fraunhofer Institutes are collaborating in this project EMMA-CC. The objective of the project "Ergodynamic Moving Manikin with Cognitive Control" is the development of an enhanced digital human model for ergonomic assessment of dynamic motions by validated simulation to support the design of healthier and safer work places in future product development and product planning processes.

About us

The main objective in the joint project work is the development of an enhanced digital human model (DHM) for ergonomic assessment of realistic dynamic motions.
