China. and examined in a perspective of apparel manufacturing requirements VARIABLES IN THE RESEARCH BIVARIENT ANALYSIS o Measurements taken from 2D system (Variable-1) o Measurements taken manually (Variable-2) RESEARCHER’S METHODOLOGY • extracted the silhouettes • attained body widths and depths at relevant landmarks • calculated the depth–width ratios at these landmarks • classified bodies into subcategories • established a girth prediction model in these subcategories using the width and depth measurements • LINEAR REGRESSION ANALYSIS o The predicted girths at the six landmarks were highly correlated with the manually measured girths (R2 ≥ 0. TX.MY PROBLEM DEFINITION:  Derive one method of extraction of body measurements through 2D images for real time data validation (From previous methods of research papers)  Compare those results with the measurements taken manually and analyze both RESEARCH PAPER TAKEN (ANNEXURE-9):  “Girth prediction of young female body using orthogonal silhouettes”  By: Bingfei Gua. School of Human Ecology. USA  (Received 27 June 2015. The University of Texas at Austin.86) • T. Soochow University. Guolian Liu and Bugao Xu  College of Textile and Clothing Engineering. accepted 27 February 2016) RESEARCHER’S PROBLEM/OBJECTIVE:  Proposed a new approach to predict girths of young female body with a dedicated 2D body imaging system  The prediction results were compared with those of the manual measurements.TEST 1|Page . Suzhou. Austin.TEST AND F.

o comparison of predicted girths and manually measured girths (no significant difference observed) METHODOLOGY USED BY ME • Formation of questionnaire to get hypothetical values of Variable-1. since the system is not yet developed by me • Checking the hypothesis of Variable-1 by One Way Anova • Taking Manual Measurements of the same people • Checking the regression by Correlation and Regression analysis for both the metric variables SCREENSHOTS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE 2|Page .

the Regression Analysis was done. Linear Regression Analysis was done. Waist. a final result table was obtained. After finding the Correlation. the Correlation between X and Y was calculated. Under-Bust. Here are the screenshots of the Regression Analysis: NECK (ANNEXURE-3) 12 | P a g e . 4. R Square value and standard error was identified in each measurement. Abdomen. Intercept (A) and Slope (B) values were calculated for X and Y. After this step. Bust. Yc= A + BX (Regression Line) 2. 3. Hip). The Line Fit Plot (Trendline) was made. the Regression Line Values (Yc) was calculated. Manual Measurements were termed as X. Through these.CORRELATION AND REGRESSION ANALYSIS For every measurement (Neck. The procedure for each measurement is as follows: 1. After doing the analysis for all the six measurements. Measurements by 2D images were termed as Y.

the graduation project wherein the actual method of extracting 2D images would be developed using MATLAB and then. 16 | P a g e .e. the same methodology would be used for deriving the correlation between the measurement values for the two variables and the standard error between the two. This means that the hip measurements from the 2D images can be looked after again and the error in other measurements can be reduced. This project is a mini version of the analysis to be done in the major project i. bust measurements showed the highest correlation value and hip showed the lowest.CONCLUSION The correlation values of every measurement show a high correlation. Amongst the six. neck measurement showed the lowest standard error of all and hip showed the highest error. Amongst the six.
