The IR emissivity of human skin is extremly high and measurements of infrared radiation emitted by the skin can be converted directly into accurate temperature value. This process is known as Body IR Thermography. Skin temperature increase associated with increased vascular flow and increased metabolism. In this paper a novel multi-resolution real-time 3D thermal imaging system as potential solution for a human body 3D thermal models standardisation is presented. The system consists of a high-resolution offline 3D scanner and a real-time low-resolution 3D scanner, both of them paired together with a thermal imaging camera. The emphasis of this paper is the presentation of the novel concept of the standardisation of human body 3D thermal models, captured by the multi-resolution real-time 3D thermal imaging system. The standardisation procedure utilises skeleton detection, skeleton transformation, mesh optimisation, and texture mapping. The presented concept enables novel and practical methods for human body 3D thermal models comparison and analysis.
