The Xsens MVN motion capture suit is an easy-to- use, cost efficient system for full-body human motion capture. MVN is based on unique, state-of-the-art miniature inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. MVN does not need external cameras, emitters or markers. It can thus be used outdoors as well as indoors, there are no restrictions for lighting, it does not suffer from problems of occlusion or missing markers. In addition, unique for inertial motion capture…

This paper develops a pose-estimation approach based on classic kinematics and shows that it is insufficient to analyze motion in a wearable system that has sensors integrated directly into garments, leading to mean Euler angle errors of up to $\pm 60^{\circ}$ and standard deviations of 120°.
In this thesis it is shown that a click-on-and-play human motion capture system is feasible and a method is presented for the identification of body segments to which inertial sensors are attached, which will reduce errors and set-up time of wearable sensor systems.
