Medieval swordsmen

Kinovis was used during the end of 2020 to produce 4D sequences of medieval swords handling.
This shooting will be showcased during an exposition about European Martial Arts in 2022 in Switzerland, prepared under the direction of Daniel Jaquet from the University of Berne, in collaboration with the EPFL and the Ancien Arsenal de Soleure Museum.
Swordmen are researchers from Universities of Gröningen and Warsaw.

Reconstruction of Armored knights for the MarchAlp project


During may and june 2019, the Kinovis platform travelled in time back to 16th century. In the framework of the MarchAlp project, researchers, historians, bio-mechanicians and sportsmen aim to re-create hardware and human conditions of the crossing of the Alps by the François 1er army in 1515 in order to scientifically measure this performance. Before reproducing the walk in reality, participants were reconstructed with and without armors thanks to the Kinovis Platform.
