Abstract
In human motion science the dynamics plays an important role.
It relates the movement of the human to the forces indispensable to achieve this movement. It also relates the human and its environment through interaction forces.
Measuring this data is not always trivial, making subject specific model is even more complicated. In the past decade we have developed solutions for the computation of the dynamic quantities of humans, based on individual (subject specific) models inspired largely by Robotics geometric and dynamic calibration. In this presentation we will present the state of the art and our latest advances in this area and show some examples of applications to both humans and humanoid robots.
