# MOTION CAPTURE OF AN ANIMATED SURFACE VIA SENSORS' RIBBONS - Surface Reconstruction via Tangential Measurements

### Nathalie Sprynski, Bernard Lacolle, Luc Biard

#### Abstract

This paper deals with the motion capture of physical surfaces via a curve acquisition device. This device is a ribbon of sensors, named Ribbon Device, providing tangential measurements, allowing to reconstruct its 3D shape via an existing geometric method. We focus here on the problem of reconstructing animated surfaces, from a finite number of curves running on these surfaces, acquired with the Ribbon Device. This network of spatial curves is organized according a comb structure allowing to adjust these curves with respect to a reference curve, and then to develop a global C1 reconstruction method based on the mesh of ribbon curves together with interpolating transversal curves. Precisely, at each time position the surface is computed from the previous step by an updating process.
