  Mirror Based Framework for Human Body Measurement

In the paper a camera-mirror based 3D measurement system is introduced aimed for reconstruction of human body parts. During the measurement the patient cannot maintain static state even for a short period which may negatively affect the accuracy of the reconstruction. Nevertheless by such applications the duration of measurement plays significant role, as well. In order to handle these issues synchronized camera group has been used together with two mirrors to capture the targeted object with a single shot entirely. As the results reflect the proposed approach might be suitable for many application where targets being in small motion must be measured at once.

Human Body


In this paper a camera and mirror based measurement framework has been proposed for human body reconstruction. Since the cameras are synchronized the targeted surface should not be static which stands for the primary feature of this system. In addition, the mirrors (two planar mirrors in our case) together with the camera group ensure the acquisition of the entire target. The measured points are represented by markers attached to the targeted surface. Although their density is not high, it might be sufficient for many applications such as production of leg sleeves for example. On the other hand the density of reconstructed points can be increased by template matching effectively, thus widening the application possibilities.
