In addition to three main commercial human models (Ramsis, Jack, Safework), there exists also many non-commercial ones used in research laboratories. Sometimes, it becomes necessary to convert motion data from one model to another. This occurs in the case of the European research project REALMAN. In this project, three models (Ramsis, Jack and Man3D) are used by different partners. As they have different kinematic architectures, we have to write converters allowing collected motion data to be used by all three human models. In this paper, we present the method developed for converting the data from the Human Solution's Ramsis to Man3D, a noncommercial model developed at INRETS. We have shown that it is possible to convert motion data from one manikin to another using a method based on skeleton model comparison.
