At the XR-Expo (July 3/4, 2019, Stuttgart) the IfM will present current applications for the digitization of human movements at the ART booth. For these applications, motion capture hardware from ART is used in combination with the biomechanical human simulation model Dynamicus from IfM.

alaska 9.7 released

Release 9.7 of the simulation software alaska/ModellerStudio has been released. An essential innovation is an interface to the rolling bearing calculation module from MESYS (, a software for technical calculations in mechanical engineering. A further innovation is the significant extension of the functionalities for modelling and high-performance use of contacts between individual bodies in MBS simulation models.
