IEEE Industry Connections (IEEE-IC) File Format Recommendations for 3D Body Model Processing

This white paper is dedicated to file formats, covering the surveys conducted by 3DBP group, determining industry needs, and providing file format recommendations to facilitate the 3D data processing. The requirements for 3D body models are thoroughly considered, five file formats are compared, two of them that meet the requirements (X3D and glTF) are explored, and the recommendations on representation options are given as well.

Standard for 3D Body Processing

This standard addresses the anthropometric and topo-physiological attributes that contribute to the quality of experience of 3D body processing, as well as identifying and analyzing metrics and other useful information, as well as data relating to these attributes. nThe standard defines a harmonized framework, suite of objective and subjective methods, tools, and workflows for assessing 3D body processing quality of experience attributes. nThe standard specifies and defines methods, metrics, and mechanisms to facilitate interoperability, communication, security and trusted operation of 3D body processing technologies. nThis includes quality of output of devices (such as sensors and/or scanners), digitization, simulation and modeling, analytics and animation, data transmission and visualization in the 3D body processing ecosystem, the ecosystem being in the near environment that interacts with the body.

IEEE 3D Body Processing - Industry Connections (3DBP IC): Communication, Security, and Privacy

The 3DBP IC Communications, Security and Privacy (CSP) subgroup is investigating the protection of data and records that may contain personal information, and how to ensure users and consumers expectations relative to privacy and security. The subgroup has determined that the requirements from the IEEE draft standards of P7002, P7004, and P7012 can be applied to 3DBP to help ensure security and privacy. Furthermore, it appears existing standards and industry practices will be helpful to enable the CSP to create requirements as normative clauses in a standard, and will use the existing standards, to the extent possible, to help enable safe, secure, transparent, and private processing of 3DBP information. In addition, the global impact of the EU GDPR will have a rippling influence on privacy requirements and the CSP is further assessing GDPR relative to data and record exchange in terms of privacy and security.
