Marker-less Motion Capture

Simi Shape 3D allows full-body 3D motion capture and analysis without any markers! Simi Shape captures movement based on silhouettes.

Simi Shape

Simi are an industry leader in marker-less motion capture and this is an exciting new technique for capturing movement data. Marker-less motion capture can be used in almost any scenario where human movement needs to be capture in indoor or outdoor environments capturing even the most complex movements.

What makes Simi Shape 3D unique?

  • no time loss due to attaching markers
  • less failure potential due to misplacement of markers
  • no artefacts because of markers moving on skin or clothes
  • no disturbance of movement caused by markers
  • hybrid tracking possibility
  • automatic processing



What results do I get with Simi Shape 3D?
After automatic tracking with Simi Shape 3D you get 3D joint coordinates and rotations of all major body segments. This data is similar to the data being calculated by marker-based models, just without using markers.

Marker-less motion capture under real competition conditions
One area that Simi Shape is particularly suited to is competitive sports conditions where it is necessary to have minimal interaction or disturbance with the athlete. Marker-less motion capture means than the hardware can be setup in a non-intrusive manor and for the first time full 3D body movement data can be captured during a competition.
Simi has been working with some of the top sporting professional bodies in Germany and USA to collect motion data from Fencing, Ski Jump, Baseball and more.
