Optical Garment Measurement using Computer Vision - Passen
Background: Passen is a technology company that helps online shoppers buy the correct fitting clothing and reduces returns for the retailer. Their software enables a user to scan their body measurement, match it against a garment’s dimensions, and recommend sizing.
Challenge: Passen wanted a rapid method to measure the dimensions of garments to populate their online database. Currently, it required a 2+ person team including an experienced tailor to perform hand measurements.
Solution: Shapetrace developed novel computer vision algorithms to measure garment dimensions using a camera and laptop. This reduce manpower to 1 person and a reduction in time by up to 50%.
