Real-time Interaction for DELMIA V5 Human (RTID)


Engineering Domain : Product Synthesis
Prerequisites : AP2 V5
Available since : 2008-10-01, V5R18

Product Overview


Based on Haption’s physics simulation technology IPSITM, RTID "Real-Time Interaction for Delmia Human" is a CAAV5-based plug-in for Delmia V5TM dedicated to process simulation and ergonomic analysis. RTID request a Pre-requisite AP2 + MHT + MHB.

It consists in two sets of V5 commands, appearing as two new toolbars:

  • RTID Core provides tools for creating an interactive physic simulation session, managing interaction devices, changing object properties, etc.
  • RTID Human complements RTID Core with human simulation functionalities, such as calibration, grasping, etc

RTID Core lets you:

  • Work with any kind of V5 data: CatPart, CGR, STP, ...
  • Feel contact forces and gravity
  • Record object motion as Delmia Move Activities
  • Control the precision down to sub-millimeter levels
  • Use any kind of haptic device (Virtuose, Inca, Able), tracking system (ART, Motion Analysis, VICON, trackd), 6D USB mouse from 3Dconnexion
  • Load kinematic constraints from V5 mechanisms

RTID Human lets you:

  • Transfer the geometry and kinematics of a V5 manikin to the physics simulation
  • Animate the V5 manikin in real-time
  • Attach haptic devices to the hands of the V5 manikin
  • Control all segments of the V5 manikin using a full-body tracking system: Animazoo, ART, Motion Analysis, Vicon and Xsens
  • Compute contact constraints in real-time
  • Control of the manikin's hands using instrumented gloves, such as CyberglovesTM II or FingerTrackingTM
  • Record the motion of the V5 manikin in real-time, and store it as a series of MoveToPosture activities
  • Replay the motion with collision cues

Customer Benefits

Customer use the Digital Mockup to take quick the decision for any Human activities in process design:

Typical Scenario:

  • Assembly validation
  • Montage procedure
  • Validate Human constraint
  • Evaluate tooling
  • Human accessibility, reachability
  • Maintainability procedure
  • Ergonomic validation

The time of validation is the time of doing the real task not more.
