I am involved in a research project involving the Faculty of motor and sport science of the university of Verona and the University of Aberdeen aimed at using shape analysis tools coming from Computer Graphics research for the analysis of the human body. We developed methods for the preprocessing of meshes acquired by whole-body scanners and automatic detection of pose, salient points and measurement. Here is a video showing some processing methods developed so far

Collaborators: Carlo Zancanaro, Christian Lovato, Umberto Castellani.
