19-20th May 2014
The Biomechanics Institute host the European project EUROFIT meeting at his venue in Valencia, next 19th and 20th of May. Integration, homogenisation and extension of the scope of anthropometric data stored in large EU pools are the main objectives of this initiative.
EUROFIT vision is to unleash the huge potential contained in the increasing number of databases of 3D body scans for the European consumer goods´industries.
Theoverall aim is thus to implement an online platform and an open framework that enables:
- Designers and industrialists to draw useful shape information and use it in their product development processes in an easy and direct way
- Database owners to pool the data they already hold and obtain revenues from its exploitation
- Third party IT companies to develop new services to reuse pooled data in unforeseen ways
