Abstract:

This report describes a study of the accuracy of the Cyberware WB4 whole-body scanner. CARD Lab researchers made multiple scans of a calibration object designed to simulate human body size and shape. Researchers then pinpointed landmarks on the scans using Integrate, a software package developed at the CARD Lab to manage and manipulate scan data. Dimensions in the scans were then compared to the actual size of the calibration object. Researchers concluded that the scans and the actual object were very comparable, that no systematic distortion occurred, and that errors caused by the scan landmarking process could be solved with enhancements to Integrate.
