Abstract

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.

Keywords: Photogrammetric anthropometry, Indian anthropometric dimensions.

Design is ubiquitous; it pervades almost all spheres of life, and has been around as long as life has taken up the task of purposefully changing the world around it. Research in design and the emergence of a research community in this area has been relatively new, its development influenced by the multiple facets of design (human, artefact, process, organisation, and the micro- and macro economy by which design is shaped) and the associated diversification of the community into those focusing on...
