The Ice interface of the database now requires Ice encoding version 1.1 (available since Ice 3.5). Please be sure to update your configuration file and also use the latest Slice file (see FAQ page).


Starting today, downloading files from the KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database using the webpage or the Ice interface requires an account. Registration is free and new accounts are active immediately.


Since the database now uses regular expressions instead of file extensions for file type detection, the labels of the file types returned by the Ice API have changed. Code that tests for predefined file types should be adapted.


All MMM motions in the database will be updated to the latest version of the MMM reference model (4 feet DoF) during the course of the next days. To work with this motions, please ensure that you are using the current version of the model, contained in MMMTools since 09.10.2015.


The KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database has been presented at the International Conference on Advanced Robotics (ICAR) 2015. You can read the paper here.

Welcome to the KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database!

With the KIT Whole-Body Human Motion Database, we aim to provide a simple way of sharing high-quality motion capture recordings of human whole-body motion. The database is run by the High Performance Humanoid Technology (H²T) Lab.

You can start browsing the Motion Database by clicking on Database.

  • The FAQ page contains the answer to some frequently asked questions about this database.
  • The Marker Set page explains the marker set used for motion capturing.
  • The Anthropometric Table page explains which anthropometric measurement are collected from subjects.
  • The Statistics page provides statistical information about the database content.
  • The Contact page provides information on how you can reach us.

In addition, with the Motion Annotation Tool, we aim to collect a comprehensive set of whole-body motions along with natural language descriptions of these motions.
