AutoRider
The AutoRider models the mass and inertia of a human body and includes graphics for the human body.
The AutoRider includes controls for setting the mass and dimension of a human body and for changing the angles in key joints like the knee and hip. Changing the angles in joints allows you to position the rider in many postures like standing, kneeling, or sitting.
The mass and dimensions of the AutoRider can be varied based on the modeling requirements.
