The motion capture (MoCap) is a highly popular subject with wide applications in different areas such as animations, situational awareness, and healthcare. An overview of MoCap utilizing different sensors and technologies is presented, and the prominent MoCap methods using inertial measurement units and optics are discussed in terms of their advantages and disadvantages. MoCap with wearable inertial measurement units is analyzed and presented specifically with the background information and methods. The chapter puts an emphasis on the mathematical model and artificial intelligence algorithms developed for the MoCap. Both the products from the important technology developers and the proof-of-concept applications conducted by Havelsan are presented within this chapter to involve an industrial perspective. MoCap system will act as a decision support system in either application by providing automatic calculation of metrics or classification, which are the basic tools for decision making.
