Statistical avatars


The shape analysis methods we conduct are based on Principal Component Analysis of the homologous representation of a set individual body sizes.
Principal Components can synthesise independent shape variations of human body.

What do these tools include?

  • PCA calculation by approximate methods (NIPALS and Random SVD)
  • Principal component visualisation of a sequence of shapes or overlapped shapes
  • Extraction of measurements from 3D shapes
  • Calculation of correlations between body measurements and Principal Components
  • Creation of representative digital mannequins of population groups or sizes
  • Segmentation of 3D body parts for product-oriented analyses
  • Creation/Edition of avatars based on Principal Components
  • Modelling of body measurements or other parameters through Principal Components
