Motion Capture Software on the NetBeans Platform

IGS-Bio is a modular software application created by Animazoo, which is the world's leading manufacturer of inertial motion capture systems. It is used for capturing animations and biomechanical data. Apart from motion capture, which is its primary purpose, it can also be used to visualize and clean animations.

IGS-Bio was designed so that it can be easily extended by third party developers, which is possible because it makes extensive use of the NetBeans Platform to achieve this.

Other NetBeans Platform applications in this domain include:

  • OpenSim, created at the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab and the National Center for Biomedical Computation at Stanford University.

  • Nimue Platform, created at the motion lab at the University of Heidelberg.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
