TexMesh: Reconstructing Detailed Human Texture and Geometry from RGB-D Video. T Zhi, C Lassner, T Tung, C Stoll, SG Narasimhan, and M Vo.

Date: August 2020. Source: 16th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) 2020 Abstract: We present TexMesh, a novel approach to reconstruct detailed human meshes with high-resolution full-body texture from RGBD video. TexMesh enables high quality free-viewpoint rendering of humans. Given the RGB frames, the captured environment map, and the coarse per-frame human mesh from RGB-D…

xEMU Lower Torso Assembly (LTA) Brief Fleet Sizing Study. K Davis, R Rhodes, KH Kim, E Benson, Y Hernandez, L Vu, S Rajulu.

Date: August 2020. Source: 50th International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES) 2020. Abstract: The Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit (xEMU) project is tasked with building a spacesuit for the lunar 2024 missions. These missions will require a mobile Lower Torso Assembly (LTA) to fit the required range of astronauts’ anthropometry with optimal mobility. The goal of…

A preliminary investigation of the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on facial morphology in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. DW Tan, YZ Foo, J Downs, A Finlay-Jones, H Leonard, M Licari, N Mullan, M Symons, KJ Varcin, AJO Whitehouse, GA Alvares.

Date: August 2020. Source:  Alcohol. Volume 86, Pages 75-80. Abstract: Alcohol exposure during pregnancy has been associated with altered brain development and facial dysmorphology. While autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is not specifically related to distinct facial phenotypes, recent studies have suggested certain facial characteristics—increased facial masculinity and asymmetry—may be associated with ASD and its clinical…

Learning to Dress 3D People in Generative Clothing. Q Ma, J Yang, A Ranjan, S Pujades, G Pons-Moll, S Tang, MJ Black.

Date: June 2020. Source: 2020 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), Seattle, WA, USA. Abstract: Three-dimensional human body models are widely used in the analysis of human pose and motion. Existing models, however, are learned from minimally-clothed 3D scans and thus do not generalize to the complexity of dressed people in common…

Thesis. Outcome assessment of facial orthopedics with taping for cleft lip deformities using 3D stereophotogrammetry. Peter Mankowski.

Date: May 2020. Source: Thesis. Master of Science, The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, Craniofacial Science, The University of British Columbia. Background: Prior to operative correction of a cleft lip, presurgical orthopaedics (PSO) with facial taping is used to improve pre-maxillary and soft tissue alignment. Two commercially available taping systems, Dynacleft and 3MTM taping…
