Title Human Purposive Movement Theory.
Publication Date Mar 2012
Media Count 40p
Personal Author B. P. Hunn
Abstract The human purposive movement theory posits that human physical behavior is goal oriented, quantifiable, and predictable. In addition, the basic characteristics of that movement are universal in nature by humans whether they are operating on their own or when using conveyances, and that the characteristics of human/machine system outputs are quantifiable and suitable for the creation of predictive algorithms. This theory coupled with fused sensor systems and robust detection and classification algorithms should enhance the understanding of human physical behavior in applied settings and may be suitable to predict human physical actions in military intelligence or other applied settings. This report reviews the basic theory and provides examples of developmental and operational technologies that could use this theory in common settings.
