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…

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…

Lumbar posture assessment with fabric strain sensors. LQ Vu, KH Kim, LJH Schulze, SL Rajulu.

Date: March 2020. Source: Computers in Biology and Medicine, Volume 118, 103624. Abstract: Astronauts are at risk for low back pain and injury during extravehicular activity because of the deconditioning of the lumbar region and biomechanical demands associated with wearing a spacesuit. To understand and mitigate injury risks, it is necessary to study the lumbar…

How the U.S. Sport Performance Apparel Industry Sizes Up to Female Plus Bodies. SL Solkolowski, J Silbert, L Griffin.

Date: October 2019. Source: 3DBODY.TECH 2019 – 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: In the United States, about 68% of the female population is greater than a size 14, or plus size [1]. This demographic represents a $21.4 billion industry [1]. Over the last five years,…

Development of a 3D Body Database to Improve Measures of Perceptual Male Body Image Distortion. SM Mohamed, N Maalin, RS Kramer, A Irvine, PL Cornelissen, KL Ritchie, MJ Tovee.

Date: October 2019. Source: 3DBODY.TECH 2019 – 10th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning and Processing Technologies, Lugano, Switzerland. Abstract: There are important limitations in the current methodological stimuli being used in perceptual body image research among men, including a reliance on unrealistic images, a lack of biometric validity, and little consideration of…

Evaluation of lumbar motion with fabric strain sensors: A pilot study.

Date: January 2019. Source: International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, Volume 69, Pages 194-199. Highlights: • Flexible strain-sensors provides a potential solution for measuring lumbar motion. • The sensor-predicted lumbar angles showed good agreement to the measured body angles. • Sensor signals may have varied between subjects due to anthropometry. • Future work is needed to…

A New Method for Finding the Shoulder Complex Rotation Centre Using 3D Body Scanning. SG Rozevink, I Kingma, D Spies et al.

Date: October 2018. Source: 9th 3DBODY.TECH Conference and Expo. October 16-17, 2018. Lugano, Switzerland, USA. Presenter: SG Rozevink Session: Technical Session 1: Medical Applications Abstract: To avoid radiation exposure to the body, the rotation centre of the shoulder complex is often assessed using the Optotrak motion capture system instead of X-ray imaging. Recently, 3D body…
