Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for measuring the movement of a garment relative to the body surface. Quantifying this movement affords a measurement of the displacement of a hypothetical body sensor embedded in a garment, which can be expressed as "error" or "movement noise" in some body-sensing applications. We present the method, based on motion-capture of garments worn by an animatronic running mannequin, and the results of two preliminary evaluations measuring the movement of a skin-tight bodysuit and a pair of denim pants.
