Overview

The aim of this project is to develop advanced infrastructures for Virtual retailing services of customised clothing:

  • an innovative Virtual Shopping Infrastructure enabling customers to visualise realistic models of themselves wearing clothes on offer at e-kiosks and Internet shops (Virtual Try-on)
  • Generic body representations and standards (European Anthropometric Database)
  • Smartcard applications, securing data privacy
  • Integration of current state-of-the-art systems (3D scanners, MTM CAD, Virtual Shopping applications) in the form of across the value-added chain demonstrators.
