Universal Design Manikin

Universal Design Manikin (UD Man) is a research project developed around human factors for both design and architecture.  The work simulates and visualizes a variety of human factors such as reach ability, vision, spatial needs, and disability.  The algorithms are developed in python and a custom plugin for MAYA was created to integrate the algorithms directly in the designers tools.  The images displayed here compare the diagrams created by students in a Universal Design class that point out problems in their own building, with the ability and features of the UD Man tool.
