Abstract

The recent diffusion of 3D acquisition devices and the increased computing power of PCs and portable devices offers several possibilities to develop interesting and innovative applications. Our group, in collaboration with the Department of Motor and Sport Sciences of University of Verona, focuses on the acquisition and analysis of human body shape, trying to connect the science of anthropometry with the fields of shape analysis and mesh processing. First results are encouraging and this approach seems to offer a mutual scientific enrichment to the involved disciplines. Compared to other kind of subjects, human body shape is an intrinsically complex subject to investigate, but provides a good outlet for the development of applications that can influence everyday life of people and prone to be transformed in useful commercial products.
