A human body measurement system using multiple view-points is proposed. Whole human body data taken from systems, which have been developed with a few viewpoints, have not been successful at acquiring due to occlusion. It is proposed that data can be successfully obtained by a method using multiple rangefinders correctly. Four compact rangefinders are installed in a pole. Those three pole units, with 12 rangefinders, are assigned around a person. Multiple viewpoint range images allow the 3D shape reconstruction of a human body. Then a morphable model is adapted to whole human body data. The measurement time is 2 seconds and the average error is found to be 1.88 mm. In this paper, the system configuration, calibration, morphable model and experimental results are described.
