We are working on an online fashion based application that provides personalized shopping experience to users based on their physical appearance. We are looking for someone in CV/IP field who might be interested to write initial algorithms for this project.
The algorithm we need to write is to create 3D base templates/models for women's clothes. For example, we may need different base 3D models for different types of skirts. Similarly, we need to create templates/models for dresses, jeans, shoes and handbags. These models should support ability to size into different shapes/sizes e.g. XS, S, M, L and XL. We will be providing input pictures of the clothes (may be multiple images of the same clothes from different angles. no complex patterns). The algorithm is to scan the input pictures, identify the type of clothes, fit the base model using the corresponding clothes template and create texture maps. We will also need to change the base template to fit the scanned image and have the capability to create clothes in different sizes e.g. XS, S, L etc.
Preferred language is python/c++/opencv/numpy. Please let us know if this is something you will be interested and we can plan on scheduling some time or chatting over the phone/skype for more questions. We would also need step-by-step approach and initial estimates in terms of time/price.
