Brown University Key Developments
Body Labs Secures U.S. Patents and Licenses for 3D Body Modeling Technologies from Brown University and Max-Planck-Innovation GmbH
Mar 21 16
Body Labs announced that it has secured the exclusive rights to two patents issued to Brown University and licenses to several new technologies developed at Max-Planck-Innovation GmbH. U.S. Patents 9,189,886 B2 and 2013/0249908 A1 expand Body Labs' exclusive ability to create accurate 3D human models learned from natural shape and pose variations captured from data inputs such as images or range maps. These patents cover intellectual property included in Body Labs' statistical model of human shape, pose and motion. This statistical approach employs machine learning algorithms and the world's most comprehensive training set of human shape and pose to convert shape parameters (measurements or scans) into the most statistically-accurate body geometry currently available. Body Labs also announced exclusive licenses to several new technologies developed at Max-Planck-Innovation GmbH. These technologies enable Body Labs to further expand its technical leadership into other areas of the human body such as hands, feet, faces and heads. Additionally, the new developments streamline the adoption of Body Labs' technology into other industry workflows such as animation pipelines, gaming, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), health, fitness and more. These technologies also provide never-before-seen detail into soft-tissue deformation trained on shape data and pose variations captured from 4D scanners.
