In crowd simulation, 3D (three-dimensional) character modeling is an important topic since the appropriate character models are helpful to improve the efficiency and realism of crowd simulation. The reconstructed 3D character model based on Kinect has a strong sense of reality and low cost. However, these models are all complex and cannot be applied to large-scale crowd simulation directly. In this paper, we propose a novel personalized human body modeling method for mass crowd simulation based

This method can be divided into two parts: In the first part, a simplified method is presented based on edge curvature and area of error. In addition, to preserve the detail characteristics of model, the way of interactive operation is introduced. In the second part, the automatic fusion for the simplified head model and body model is made by using the improved FCF (fusion control function) fusion method. Finally, a hierarchical database for the personalized human body models is built. The experiment results show that the method proposed in this paper has high efficiency and good robustness in practical applications.
