We proposed a simple, easy-to-use system to reconstruct an individual's foot shape in 3D by using an array of distance sensors and data of known foot shape collected in a database. In our system, values from the sensors will be used to generate a silhouette image, where its information will then be used as the base to search for the most similar model from the database to reconstruct a 3D foot shape. In order to verify the effectiveness of our method, we conducted experiments to evaluate the accuracy of the reconstructed foot shape.
