IEEE SA 3D Body Processing Industry Connections--Comparative Analysis of Anthropometric Methods: Past, Present, and Future

The 3DBP IC's Quality subgroup focuses on developing preliminary methods, tools, benchmarks, resources, and testing procedures to define and quantify the quality of 3D models as well as the quality of the critical metadata, such as body landmarks and measurements. To further this goal, the 3DBP IC Group completed a comparative analysis of anthropometric methods focused on body measurements and captured 3D body shapes. The aim of this study is twofold: first, to propose a methodology to assess the compatibility and repeatability of different body measurement extraction methods (e.g., body scanners, smartphone apps, and traditional anthropometry) using consistent criteria, and second, to conduct data collection and the corresponding analyses for the first instance of the application of the proposed methodology.
