Abstract

The 3D silhouette reconstruction of a human body rotating in front of a monocular camera system is a very challenging task due to elastic deformation and positional mismatch from body motion. Nevertheless, knowledge of the 3D body shape is a key information for precise determination of one’s clothing sizes, e.g. for precise shopping to reduce the number of return shipments in online retail. In this paper a novel three step alignment process is presented, utilizing As-Rigid-As-Possible (ARAP) transformations to normalize the body joint skeleton derived from OpenPose with a CGI rendered reference model in A- or T-pose. With further distance-map accelerated registration steps, positional mismatches and inaccuracies from the OpenPose joint estimation are compensated thus allowing for 3D silhouette reconstruction of a moving and elastic object without the need for sophisticated statistical shape models. Tests on both, artificial and real-world data, generally proof the practicability of this approach with all three alignment/registration steps essential and adequate for 3D silhouette reconstruction data normalization.
