Do the Locomotion with Me
Walking is one of the fundamental forms of human gross motor activity in which spatiotemporal movement coordination can occur. While considerable body of evidence already exists on pedestrian movement coordination while walking in pairs, little is known about gait control while walking in more complex topological arrangements. To address this problem, a novel experimental platform has been developed utilising the latest achievements in motion capture technology, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and computer modelling. The platform enables a pedestrian to walk with a crowd of intelligent avatars in fully immersive and interactive 3D virtual environment while having their gait monitored.
