Abstract

In this work, a cloud service framework is presented for the design evaluation of personalized footwear in augmented reality (AR) via networks. The service allows users to ubiquitously perceive themselves trying on 3D shoe models in a video stream. The users may upload a video clip of their feet in motion that has been recorded with a commercial depth camera to the cloud. A new clip is generated to display the try-on process and made available to specified receivers via video streaming on a mobile device. The proposed framework design is focused on making most use of open-source software and off-the-shelf technologies that are commercially available. A prototyping cloud system that implemented the framework demonstrated the practical value of virtual footwear try-on as AR as a Service (ARaaS). This research realizes the idea of human-centric design evaluation in modern e-commerce. The cloud framework may provide a feasible solution for the improvement of the usability for real-time applications of AR.
