An Introduction to BoSS-21 and a Framework to Build 3D Surface Human Models Using Anthropometric Constrains



VisImage Systems Inc., Toronto, Canada


This paper introduces a Body Sizing System for 21 century (BoSS-21), which is a non-contact and automatic system to provide anthropometric measurement of an adult individual. BoSS-21 has been used in Canadian Military since 1999 for uniform design and purchase, anthropometric screening of aircraft pilot and vehicle drivers, as well as a general anthropometric survey.
This paper also introduces a framework to build a 3D surface human model using anthropometric constrains. This approach will generate a model, which is more anthropocentrically accurate comparing to the real human subject. To evaluate a 3D anthropometric model, we propose to use the differences on the anthropometric measures, such as defined in ISO7250, between the real subject and model under evaluation.
