Preview of 3D Body Scanning Technologies 2015, Lugano, Switzerland

I’m heading off to the 6th 3D Body Scanning Technologies conference (3DBST) for two days next week (27, 28 October).

Each day will host parallel sessions about 3D human body scanning and its industrial applications. According to the conference programme, this year they focus on

  • 3D body scanning technologies
  •  body measurements and its application in fashion industry
  •  medical applications
  •  scanning for health and sport
  •  anthropometric studies & surveys
  •  body scanning assessment & use

As you can imagine, there’s plenty there that could be relevant to what we are doing in Metail R&D to create better MeModels and clothing visualisation. I’m particularly looking forward to the following topics and tech talks:

  • Mobile body modelling solution 
    • Precise and Automatic Anthropometric Measurement Extraction Using Template Registration (DFKI, Germany)
    • Challenges of Designing a 3D Camera for Mobile Handsets and Tablets (Alces Technology, USA)
    • Volume Extraction from Body Scans for Bra Sizing (University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany)
  • Low cost scanning solutions
    • From Handheld Tablets to Retail Booths – New 3D Body Scanning Solutions (Size Stream, USA)
    • Low-Cost Data-Driven 3D Reconstruction and its Application (IBV, Spain)
    • Unlocking the Body as a Digital Platform and the Rise of Reliable Consumer Scanners (Body Labs Inc., USA)
  • Cloth/garment modelling
    • 3D Product Development for Loose-Fitting Garments Based on Parametric Human Models (TU Dresden and ITU, Germany)
    • Determination of the Air Gap Thickness Underneath the Garment for Lower Body Using 3D Body Scanning
    • A Dense Surface Motion Capture System for Accurate Acquisition of Cloth Deformation (Surrey uni, UK)

Apart from the tech talks there are demos from scanning companies such as Styku (USA), 3dMD (UK/USA), Size Stream (USA), VITRONIC (Germany), Sizzy (France), IBV (Spain), TechMed 3D (Canada).

If you’re going to the conference and want to meet up for a coffee or even a refreshing beer after a long tiring conference, please contact me at dongjoe@metail.com
