PARTIAL HUMAN BODY MODELING WITH VOXEL DATA

The robust modeling of the human body has many uses, including motion capture, 3D model generation, pose estimation. This approach uses the voxel reconstruction of the subject constructed using shape-from-silhouette.

From a calibrated set of cameras, color images of the subject are segmented producing silhouette images of the subject.

A voxel in space is considered occupied when the projection of this voxel onto each image lies on a silhouette pixel. The result is the voxel reconstruction of the subject. This voxel data is then used to fit a partial body model consisting of head and torso.
