Title: Overview of Methods for 3D Reconstruction of Human Models with Applications in Fashion E-commerce
Keywords: Overview, 3D Reconstruction, E-commerce, Monocular Video, Image Processing

Abstract: In this scientific paper, an overview of different methodologies and algorithms used for the reconstruction of 3D human models from 2D videos of people in action is presented. These methods could be applicable in the growing e-commerce business. Due to emerging challenges of global warming and the coronavirus pandemic, many developments in the apparel industry must be made in order to make the branch more sustainable and eco-friendly. In this time of globalisation, many brands produce and sell their items internationally and use long-distance shipping to distribute and deliver to their shops and clients. With online shopping, there is a big concern with clothing being the “wrong size” or “wrong item”. To tackle this problem companies, offer their clients the opportunity to return ill-fitting items, but that is a problem in itself because it increases their carbon footprint and it creates unnecessary pollution. A possible solution may come from the use of a computer vision application
