RAMSIS/SCAN – A New Approach to 3D-Body-Scanning for Automated Anthropometric Measuring and Individual Product Design 1999-01-1890

Efficient perception and evaluation of anthropometrical data forms the basis for human modeling methodologies. Since the early beginning of the development of the ergonomics tool RAMSIS in 1988 appropriate measurement systems had been developed simultaneously. Within our 3D-Body-Scanner development new integrated approaches and methods for human body measurement have been investigated and developed. The activities concentrated on both the development of a fast body scanner for three dimensional perception and the use of the 3D-CAD-manmodel RAMSIS as a necessary prerequisite for the interpretation of the range readings and automatic generation of an individualized 3D-Man-Model and body measurements.
In this paper, an integrated process chain for individual production is introduced. In order to fulfill industrial requirements a complex measurement system has been developed, which combine high precision perception with high degree of automatism as well as minimal user interaction.
