TNO - 3D Body Scan
Know-how is available on the derivation of body measures from scans; construction of made-to-measure clothing or apparel based on primary tasks, body measures, joint locations, motion behavior and comfort. With the 3D-body scanner, a new anthropometric database of the Dutch population is produced, called NedScan2000 (see www.nedscan.nl). Information on the anthropometry of other populations is available. A set of 16 moving cameras scans a laser stripe, which is projected on the body. The data of the cameras is combined to produce the full 3D geometry with a resolution of about 2-mm. Four additional colour cameras store the actual colours of the object or body.
The scanner can measure a volume of 2100 mm high x 1200 x 800 mm. Horizontal resolution is approximately 2 mm. Vertical resolution can be set between 0.86 mm and 4.3 mm.
