Title: SYSTEM AND METHODS FOR CHARACTERIZING A FABRIC OR MATERIAL
Abstract:
Embodiments of the inventive apparatus, including the associated data collection and processing methods, may be used to measure and evaluate various characteristics of a fabric or other material. Those characteristics may then be used directly or indirectly (such as after being subjected to further data processing, signal processing, machine learning, statistical analysis, etc.) to populate one or more parameters of a mathematical model of the fabric/material or a garment constructed from the same. Data obtained from operation of the inventive material scanner may be used to construct or refine mathematical models (such as by using data mining, curve fitting, or machine learning techniques) and/or provide values of one or more parameters used by existing models.
