3D shape measurement techniques for human body reconstruction
In this work the performances of three different techniques for 3D scanning have been investigated. In particular two commercial tools (smartphone camera and iPad Pro LiDAR) and a structured light scanner (Go!SCAN 50) have been used for the analysis. First of all, two different subjects have been scanned with the three different techniques and the obtained 3D model were analysed in order to evaluate the respective reconstruction accuracy. A case study involving a child was then considered, with the main aim of providing useful information on performances of scanning techniques for clinical applications, where boundary conditions are often challenging (i.e., non-collaborative patient). Finally, a full procedure for the 3D reconstruction of a human shape is proposed, in order to setup a helpful workflow for clinical applications.
