Virtual Human Simulation as a design tool for products and workspaces
Virtual reality simulations offer companies and institutions added value – products in development can be visualized, tested and improved before production begins.
At Fraunhofer IAO, we support our customers throughout the planning process: using interactive, real-time visualization, motion capturing and virtual human models, we can put products through their paces on the test bench and avoid costly development misadventures. To do this we employ state-of-the-art technology in development and test labs.
Virtual human models are ideal for
- testing products and workstation systems for people of all shapes and sizes,
- carrying out comfort, accessibility or visibility analyses, and
- simulating different usage profiles and application cases – including barrier-free, age-appropriate housing, ergonomic vehicle interiors, and machine and systems operation.
Harnessing the interaction technology of virtual reality, Fraunhofer IAO delivers credible results – quickly, with no fuss and at competitive prices. What’s more, we provide support to our customers who want to apply virtual human simulation methods themselves. We can design and implement the right systems and processes for your company.
