Motion Analysis provides effective, expandable industrial solutions for military, engineering, robotics, product designers, and manufacturers to shorten development cycles and reduce costs. Cortex allows for accurate and precise low latency measurement of kinetic movement and body angles for applications such as ergonomic workplace considerations, ergonomic product development, armed forces simulation and training, and robotics research and development. Cortex provides easy integration with a wide range of control systems. Motion Analysis also provides a VRPN server for streaming real-time data from Cortex to a range of engineering, simulation, and virtual reality applications requiring six degree of freedom (6 DoF) tracked objects.
IndustrialIndustrial applications include research on ergonomic conditions, product development, and testing. Using Cortex, manufacturers can effectively identify and correct ergonomic issues that lead to injury or to design more effective ergonomic products.
Ford Motor Company utilized Motion Analysis systems to conduct an ergonomic analysis of their assembly line, enabling them to identify and correct ergonomic issues that led to injury. Repetitive, stress-related injuries such as rotator cuff tears, strains, and spinal compression were shown to have significantly decreased after the issues were addressed. In addition, new vehicle quality increased to five times the national average as workers’ injury rates declined.
Military TrainingMotion Analysis systems provide effective, expandable solutions for military training in immersive, real-time 3D virtual reality environments. Our systems offer low-latency streaming, greatly reducing the chance of subjects experiencing motion sickness. Cortex is able to track anywhere from one subject to an entire squad. Jumping into the VR active environment is quick and easy; as soon as the markers are placed, the system is ready to go.
SimulationMotion Analysis systems can transfer real-life objects into digital settings or creating 3D virtual objects. Capable of seamless integration into any VR, AR, or Cave system, Motion Analysis low-latency motion tracking systems are completely scalable with the ability to handle any capture space. Cortex supports drivers for all major graphics engines, HMDs, and Eyetrackers.
Cortex allows product manufacturers to design digital prototypes, reducing the costs and time incurred with creating a physical prototype. These digital prototypes also allow them to conduct thorough design analysis and revisions prior to putting the finished design into production. In the event that a flaw is found in the design, Cortex makes it easy to revise it at no additional expense.
Using Motion Analysis systems, Lockheed Martin developed one of the largest virtual reality laboratories of its kind. Collaborative Human Immersive Laboratory (CHIL) enables engineers and technicians to collaborate on product design and manufacturing by analyzing it in a virtual environment. Using VR, Lockheed Martin is able to approach product design and development holistically. From manned spaceflight to imaging satellites, designs can be validated and tested early in the development phase, greatly reducing cost, risk, and time.
