SizeChina-Hunan collects the latest data of Chinese head and face which will provide critical information for ergonomics. The accurate figure of the human head and face can provide vital advantages by designing wearable products, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets or safety glasses. However, the complex surface geometry of the human head and face presents a challenge for designers and engineers on account of the traditional ways of anthropometric surveys has numbers of limitations. The anthropometric survey of SizeChina-Hunan makes a combination of the traditional measurement way and high-resolution 3D scanning. The total number of subjects required at each site recruit 275 subjects with individuals ranging in age from 18 to 70 years and two sexes. Consequently, the goal was to recruit 2200 individuals totally ranging in 7 regional location respectively.
