Position, Posture, and Pose Definitions for 3D Body Processing

The interchangeable use of the terms position, posture, and pose causes confusion for 3D body processing (3DBP) applications. This paper reviews current definitions and contextual use of these terms to suggest standardized nomenclature for posture and pose. This paper also reviews and discusses possible standard definitions for location, body regions, landmarks, and anatomical relationships. With large language models being central to artificial intelligence (AI), standardized terminology is imperative to all digitization efforts. Replicating, or cloning of, actual posture is a known challenge inhibiting cloned human body models, optimized virtual try-on, and critical fit assessment. 3DBP applications need to be sophisticated enough to accept and utilize unique actual postures, in a given pose, which may vary drastically from a predetermined norm. The discussion builds off of current ISO standards to an open discussion for standards toward posture-improved human body models inclusive of widely varying morphology.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
