Professor Yam is the principal investigator of Centre for Perceptual and Interactive Intelligence (CPII) since 2020. Before returning to teach at CUHK, he was a member of the Technical Staff in the Control Analysis Research Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, USA.
This technology focuses on the research of 3D human modelling, parametric design, prototyping and non-traditional materials fabrication.
Non-Traditional Materials Fabrication
By using a Full-Scale 3D Human Body Scanner that allows full body digitization of human subject with 0.2mm precision to support the formulation and analysis of a wide range of 3D human modelling schemes, we can apply our knitting instructions map or weaving map to produce personalized wearable fabrication with designated functions and/or advance mechanical properties.
With the ability to capture detailed body measurements and contours, the technology can be used to create custom-fit clothing that is tailored to the individual’s unique shape and size for produce a wide variety of clothing types.
