3D Shape Reconstruction of Trunk Swaying Human Body Segments
We propose a method for acquiring a 3D shape of human body segments accurately. Using a light stripe triangulation range finder, we can acquire accurate the 3D shape of a motionless object in a dozen of seconds. If the object were to move during the scanning, the acquired shape would be distorted. Naturally, humans move slightly for making balance while standing even if the subject tries to stay still for avoiding the distortion of the shape. Our method corrects the distortion based on measured motion during the scanning.
Experimental results show the accuracy of our shape measurements. Trunk swaying degrades the accuracy of the light stripe triangulation from 1mm to 10mm. We can keep the accuracy of as good as 2mm by applying our method.
