In contrast to most 3D scanning technologies that were originally designed to scan inanimate objects for reverse engineering application, 3dMD developed its highly-advanced motion-3D/4D capture technology from the outset to achieve the ultra-fast capture speeds required to image human subjects with sub-millimeter shape information precision.
Advanced Technology. 3dMD technology captures 4D anatomical shape information of a subject’s natural physical movements (1- 120 frames per second) for applications demanding textured 3D dense-surface image precision such as healthcare, computer vision, Artificial Intelligence, robotic training sets, wearable-tech, human factors, apparel, anthropometric, AR/VR/XR content and perception training, biometric security, etc. 3dMD systems generate progressive sequences of near ground-truth 3D images for the region of interest, whether it is full body, face, head, hand, foot, etc., with high precision and fidelity.
With an efficient workflow as high as one subject per minute, 3dMD systems support high-volume throughput objectives while adhering to social distancing guidelines. This ability to scale has the potential to meaningfully increase the statistical size and diversity of the anatomical-3D subject database training the models driving Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Robotics innovations. 3dMD databases can be re-mined for testing hypotheses and building a foundation for deep discovery of human physical behavior and inherited characteristics.
Proven Customer Track Record. With 4,000 3D/4D cameras worldwide, 3dMD has established its robust 3D/4D capture technology as a workhorse for building relevant population databases in the most advanced fields of research. The 3dMD customer community has and continues to publish thousands of peer-reviewed investigative research papers enumerating many aspects of the human condition, articulation, and performance… see Customer Research.
