“7” mobile scanners for contactless measurements

Contactless measurements are becoming a necessity in sectors like Apparel and Medical sectors. This need has given rise to quite a few innovations to enable an individual to generate a 3D scan of his/her body. It is no longer fiction or a distant dream. It is happening here and now. This blog enlists some of the many mobile-based solutions available today. They come from all over the world, from large and small entrepreneurs.

Inbuilt and Mounted Mobile scanners

Apple’s LIDAR scanner enables capabilities never before possible on any mobile device. 

The LiDAR Scanner measures the distance to surrounding objects up to 5 meters away, works both indoors and outdoors, and operates at the photon level at nano-second speeds. New depth frameworks in iPadOS combine depth points measured by the LiDAR Scanner, data from both cameras and motion sensors, and is enhanced by computer vision algorithms on the A12Z Bionic for a more detailed understanding of a scene. 

Apple’s LiDAR Scanner aims to be used to create cutting-edge-depth mapping points when combined with camera and motion sensor data to create a more detailed and accurate three-dimensional (3D) information of the scene and for instant object placement. Its ARKit SDK enables converting this to a 3D mesh.

Amazon’s Halo

Amazon too has been investing in body measurements and its latest Halo device can scan the body for contactless measurements.  The capabilities of Halo are highlighted in this article and this blog 

Structure Sensor is one of the most popular scanners, used to generate scans for contactless measurements. Mounted on an iPad it can be used to scan any object. This blog describes how it can be used to create a 3D body scan.

ItSeez3D extends Structure Sensor for an even better experience. 

Mobile Applications 

There are many mobile applications available for creating a 3D scan using the depth sensor in the mobile camera. I have listed a few interesting ones here

  1. 3D Creator from Sony Mobile Communications
  2. Heges works with iPad and iPhone.
  3. Capture an application from https://www.standardcyborg.com/product/


Photo to 3D Scan

Facebook’s PiFUHD is an open-source library that can convert a 2D photo of a person to a 3D scan. It is good enough avatar creation. Using it for accurate measurement required by the garment and medical applications needs to be tested.

3D Measure Up body measurement platform can process scans from these sources to extract measurements. The accuracy of the measurement depends on the quality of the scan.

3D Measure Up enables a comfortable fit by focusing on the development of the latest 3D body processing requirements with a set of ISO-compliant standards and also on a proprietary platform that combines 3D modeling, numerical, and machine learning methods to provide highly precise and efficient identification and measurement.
