In recent years, extended reality has increasingly been used to enhance the shopping experience for customers. In particular, some virtual dressing room applications have begun to develop, as they allow customers to try on digital clothes and see how they fit. However, recent studies found that the presence of an AI or a real shopping assistant could improve the virtual dressing room experience. In response to this, we have developed a collaborative synchronous virtual dressing room for image consulting that allows customers to try on realistic digital garments chosen by a remotely connected human image consultant. The application has different features for the image consultant and the customer. The image consultant can connect to the application, define a database of garments, select different outfits with different sizes for the customer to try, and communicate with the customer through a single RGB camera system. The customer-side application can visualize the description of the outfit that the avatar is wearing, as well as the virtual shopping cart. The main purpose of the application is to offer an immersive experience, ensured by the presence of a realistic environment, an avatar that resembles the customer, a real-time physically-based cloth simulation algorithm, and a video-chat system.

Abstract

In recent years, extended reality has increasingly been used to enhance the shopping experience for customers. In particular, some virtual dressing room applications have begun to develop, as they allow customers to try on digital clothes and see how they fit. However, recent studies found that the presence of an AI or a real shopping assistant could improve the virtual dressing room experience. In response to this, we have developed a collaborative synchronous virtual dressing room for image consulting that allows customers to try on realistic digital garments chosen by a remotely connected human image consultant. The application has different features for the image consultant and the customer. The image consultant can connect to the application, define a database of garments, select different outfits with different sizes for the customer to try, and communicate with the customer through a single RGB camera system. The customer-side application can visualize the description of the outfit that the avatar is wearing, as well as the virtual shopping cart. The main purpose of the application is to offer an immersive experience, ensured by the presence of a realistic environment, an avatar that resembles the customer, a real-time physically-based cloth simulation algorithm, and a video-chat system.
