Using a digital human model for dynamic analysis is due to the high modelling complexity in digital environments not very prevalent. The movement of the worker is either unrealistic, or time-consuming to realize. Therefore, the need for research is a time saving possibility to explore virtual validation by a human model taking advantage of a nonetheless realistic movement design. To achieve this goal, we use an experimental setup including both a hybrid motion capture system and an interface for the connection to digital validation software. The motion capturing in connection along with the validation software allows real time modelling respectively tracking and therefore a realistic movement of the human model. To get good results while applying the motion capturing approach in mixed reality situations, it is necessary to have an exact registration between the real and virtual environment. Hence, the experimental setup must be designed for both. The key challenge here is to superimpose the CAD data with the real objects used for haptic feedback and better immersion. To realize an optimal registration we use a laser tracker solution.
