Digitally Defining the Human Body
Anthropometry is the study of human body measurements. The term includes the actual process of measurements, the recording of data, data summarization, documentation, and manipulation for various analyses. The CAESAR® project will generate a database of human physical dimensions for men and women of various weights, between the ages of 18 and 65. A total of 2,500 people in the United States and 2,500 in Europe will be measured.
SAEs Cooperative Research Program was responsible for raising industry funding for CAESAR. Although the deadline for partnership closed April 15, 2000, CAESAR data is to be available for purchase to the public in approximately April 2002.
This project will digitally scan the human body to provide more comprehensive data than was previously available through traditional methods of measurement.
Using the Air Forces whole body scanner, the CAESAR project will be used to produce 3-D data on the size and shape of todays human body. This unprecedented project will benefit companies from a wide range of industries.
