Abstract

The recent advances in full human body imaging technology illustrated by the 3D human body scanner (HBS), a device delivering full human body shape data, opened up large perspectives for the deployment of this technology in various fields (e.g. clothing industry, anthropology, entertainment). Yet this advance brought challenges on how to process and interpret the data delivered by the HBS in order to bridge the gap between this technology and potential applications. This paper surveys the literature on methods, for human body scan data segmentation and modelling, that attempted to overcome these challenges. It also discusses and evaluated the different approaches with respect to several requirements.
