Scanning 3D Full Human Bodies Using Kinects

  title={Scanning 3D Full Human Bodies Using Kinects},
  author={Jing Tong and Jin Zhou and Ligang Liu and Zhigeng Pan and Hao Yan},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics},
Depth camera such as Microsoft Kinect, is much cheaper than conventional 3D scanning devices, and thus it can be acquired for everyday users easily. However, the depth data captured by Kinect over a certain distance is of extreme low quality. In this paper, we present a novel scanning system for capturing 3D full human body models by using multiple Kinects. To avoid the interference phenomena, we use two Kinects to capture the upper part and lower part of a human body respectively without… CONTINUE READING
