TOKYO, July 6, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu has successfully developed a new technology to accurately estimate postures of the human body from coarse-grained point cloud data obtained with a conventional millimeter-wave sensor.

Key Points: 
  • TOKYO, July 6, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu has successfully developed a new technology to accurately estimate postures of the human body from coarse-grained point cloud data obtained with a conventional millimeter-wave sensor.
  • To address this issue, Fujitsu has developed a technology that enables expansion from coarse-grained point cloud data to fine-grained point cloud data necessary for an accurate posture estimation by fusing time series information of point cloud data in a series of movements of the human body.
  • Fujitsu has developed a new technology that enables a detailed analysis of human behavior using a common 79 GHz millimeter-wave sensor compliant with the Radio Law of Japan.
  • (3) Postures of the human body can be expressed as time-series point cloud data as even a general millimeter-wave sensor with a coarse granularity of point cloud data that can be acquired by radio wave irradiation at one time can achieve highly accurate estimation.
