4th International Conference and Exhibition on 3D Body Scanning Technologies
I am going to this event to meet who I hope are future business partners in my human health graph enterprise. I'm convinced no one has emerged out of stealth development with a direct to consumer solution for whole/total/full body scanning and imaging with automatic orthorectification. The requisite inputs for orthorectification are 1) an image with accurate sensor geometry and 2) an elevation model of the body surface in VRML/X3D format. I haven't found any providers of automatic orthorectification for a human body of any age, size, posture or gender at rest. Developing the body scaffold for the panoply of scanners and imagers moving along it is one of many development projects necessary for HHG success. The field of regard and field of view for the scanners and imagers will be smaller than the scanned and imaged area no matter where they are along the body scaffold. This will require a dynamic shutter as the slant range between he body and the scanners and imagers will vary 50% from a nominal distance of 15 cm. The elevation and image resolutions will be designed to match an adult human's unaided vision or 90 micrometers. This equates to approximately 200,000,000 vertices (elevation mesh) and 200,000,000 pixels per spectral band.
