Using VHD to build a comprehensive human model

Abstract: In this paper, we present our work on building a comprehensive human model using the Visible Human Dataset (VHD) for the European project CHARM (Comprehensive Human Animation Resource Model). In contrast to the unstructured and static data provided by the VHD, the CHARM project aims at providing a structured and dynamic model of the human body. Such model includes modeling of the geometry of important organs, their inter relationships, and their mechanical behavior. Though our present work is concentrated to the modeling of the left upper limb, the methodology and tools can be applied to the modeling of any other part or the whole body. We also outline the benefits as well as the difficulties encountered using the VHD, in our case the Visible Male Dataset.
