Internship: Anatomy in Motion Capture

Internal Anatomy in Motion Capture Animation

Master Internship, Morpheo and Imagine teams

Goal: To animate an anatomical model based on motion capture

Contact: Edmond Boyer, François Faure

Proposed work

The objective of this project is to animate an anatomical model, a human anatomy for example, using real performances captured with a multi-camera system. The project will build on recent works performed in the Imagine team, on anatomy transfer [1], and in the Morpheo team, on shape tracking [2] (see images below). The idea is first to recover, from multiple images, the locations of shape points, in space and over time. Given this information,   in a second step, an anatomical model will be animated by fitting its external surface to the observed shape points.

Follow-ups

This work may be continued as a PhD thesis. The results may be used by the Anatoscope startup company.
