HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / June 1, 2023 / Movella Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:MVLA), a leading full-stack provider of sensors, software, and analytics that enable the digitization of movement, is assisting automotive manufacturers in the continued improvement of employee safety and wellness. The BMW Group utilizes Movella's motion capture technology to easily perform realistic ergonomic evaluations of production workers with higher precision and reliability.
In the United States, the costs of overexertion and repetitive motion to the automotive industry were estimated at $18 billion in 2019. The SERA (Safety & Ergonomic Risk Assessment) tool was designed by the BMW Group and uses scientifically validated methods for whole-body workplace ergonomic assessments. Conventional ergonomic risk assessments can, however, be time consuming and subjective. This further led the BMW Group to develop DWSM (Digital Workplace Stress Management), a system to capture workplace ergonomic assessments digitally. The BMW Group selected Movella's workplace ergonomics solution with the MVN Awinda® motion capture system and MVN Analyze® proprietary software to provide faster, objective workplace ergonomic assessments across all international production facilities.
Motion capture tools provide information about the physical stresses of employees while they work on the production lines. When the data indicates increased ergonomic stresses, changes are made to the workplace to reduce physical stress. DWSM enables comparability, uniformity, and compatibility across BMW Group production facilities.
"Movella is proud to see its tools being used for a uniform, informed approach to automotive safety," said CJ Hoogsteen, VP Sales at Movella. "The BMW Group's development of DWSM demonstrates a commitment to cultivating responsible working practices across the industry."
