The Future of Fit Technology: Using LiDAR Technology for Safe and Efficient Shopping Experiences

March 22, 2023

The importance of designing secure and efficient shopping experiences is increasingly evident. Consumers are seeking convenient, personalized experiences that cater to their unique needs while maintaining their privacy and security. Three-dimensional information is more detailed than 1D or 2D. With this in mind, it is difficult to distinguish a consumer’s true size solely through traditional measurement methods.

This whitepaper presents the advantages of using LiDAR 3D scanning for safe and effective apparel shopping experiences. With recent technological advances, 3D body scanning has become one of the safest and most private experiences since its introduction to the market years ago. FIT:MATCH, a technology company, employs a privacy-first approach to body scanning, ensuring no bio-identifiable data is processed. The technology performs body scans from device sensors, which create a non-identifiable digital twin used to match consumers to their best-fitting apparel.

This paper compares LiDAR technology to other scanning methods and explains why LiDAR mapping is the preferred method for creating accurate and safe body avatars. The implications of these findings for the fashion industry are discussed, along with recommendations for future research in this area. This paper highlights the potential of LiDAR technology to revolutionize the fashion industry by providing safe, accurate, and personalized shopping experiences for consumers.
