Spine Visualization

Spine Visualization

This project visualises human spinal motion capture data recorded from a subjects back.

I created the unity application that displays the spine model based on the motion capture data. It has full playback control and displays a graph comparing the data at each sensor position.

We also used Arduino microcontrollers to record a pressure sensitive mat that we synced with the motion capture data. I used a UDP packet with a simple .net application to synchronise the initial recording for the seperate data sources. The final application shows three input data sources, the spine model, the pressure mat and the bending sensors.

I also created the custom Arduino code that sent the data over the serial port to the .net application.
