Error estimation for single-image human body mesh reconstruction
MetadataShow full item record
Human pose and shape estimation methods continue to suffer in situations where one or more parts of the body are occluded. More importantly, these methods cannot express when their predicted pose is incorrect. This has serious consequences when these methods are used in human-robot interaction scenarios, where we need methods that can evaluate their predictions and flag situations where they might be wrong. This work studies this problem. We propose a method that combines information from OpenPose and SPIN—two popular human pose and shape estimation methods—to highlight regions on the predicted mesh that are least reliable. We have evaluated the proposed approach on 3DPW, 3DOH, and Human3.6M datasets, and the results demonstrate our model’s effectiveness in identifying inaccurate regions of the human body mesh.
