We propose a method for surface reconstruction from point cloud of human body in arbitrary postures. In this method, we make volume data from the point cloud. Then a human model is matched to the volume data and human body posture is estim ated. Point cloud is classified into parts by the estimated posture. For each classified point cloud, surface is reconstructed with 2D delaunay trian gulation. Then whole body surface is reconstructed by collecting surfaces of parts. In our experiments, postures are estimated and surfaces are reconstructed from synthetic data and real data.
