LiDAR Try-On

LiDAR Try-On mobile app offers virtual experiences by harnessing the power of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology. By integrating LiDAR capabilities, the app presents different level of user targeting and engagement. Through precise 3D body scanning, the app provides users with accurate measurements and an authentic representation of themselves, eliminating the need for generic avatars. This approach ensures a truly personalized and immersive virtual experience that surpasses expectations.

​Existing virtual try-on experiences often rely on generic avatars and manual measurements, leading to fit inaccuracies and a less immersive experience.

Problem Identification

To augment the virtual try-on experience and optimize user targeting, this app aims to enhance the process by leveraging LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology. By implementing advanced 3D body scanning techniques, the solution enables precise measurements and an authentic representation of each individual, going beyond the conventional approach of recommending the closest avatar from a pre-existing dataset.

Augmentation with LiDAR
  • Intuitive Interface: Wireframes demonstrate a streamlined scanning process designed for ease of use. Consider how the app will guide the user to position themselves for optimal LiDAR capture.

  • Realistic 3D Models: Early prototypes demonstrate how LiDAR data translates into accurate onscreen representations of the user's body, upon which virtual garments are superimposed.

UI & Potential AI Component

The remarkable potential of integrating LiDAR technology into mobile phones heralds a new era of possibilities for future applications. With the ability to scan a wider range and capture an extensive amount of data about the surrounding environment, LiDAR systems excel at detecting objects even when obstructed by other elements. This enhanced range and scanning capability empower LiDAR to precisely identify objects positioned both in front of and behind obstacles, surpassing traditional detection methods.

Evaluation

LiDAR scanning technology and its development on mobile phones will provide the apparel industry with the precise tool to measure and design different types of apparel and provide the market segment with the right fitting clothing. Optimum utilization of this technology will create a drastic change in the fashion industry and in the way apparel shopping is done now. In this research, the proposed platform has the potential to make a positive change in the apparel industry. It is an effective strategy for enhancing customer experience and satisfaction and minimizing inventory costs and returns. However, the ultimate success of LiDAR 3D Body Scanning technology depends on the consumers' acceptance and application of the process. The customers’ acceptance depends on the look and finish of the final 3D scan, his awareness of the technology, and accessibility of these applications.
