Single Camera Digital Photogrammetric Anthropometry of Indian Adult Males
This paper discusses the procedure and results of single camera photogrammetric anthropometry carried out to deduce 36 body dimensions of Indian males aged between 22 to 50 years. It is a low cost method and can be used widely to carry out a larger anthropometric survey. The paper discusses the complete procedure and errors involved in the process. It elaborates the effective error due to parallax and the technique adopted for its elimination. The effective mean error in the readings was reduced to 0.32 percent. The special application of this low cost photogrammetric technique is to generate planar intra body dimensions which may be requiredfor specific design applications. The results of the photogrammetric anthropometry are compared with earlier anthropometric results augmenting the earlier Indian anthropometric data base.
