System Development and Integration

     

    Producing virtual characters for the exergame and modelling body movements for dance and Tai Chi exercise, which have been inserted in the system. The virtual  characters have been used for movement/posture matching in the algorithms running in the frontend application. This enables correct validation of the movements/postures performed by the user.
