This paper aims to achieve automatic and efficient measurement of the body in garment customization. Therefore, an intelligent body measurement system was established based on ultrasonic sensor arrays, which can efficiently capture the bust, waist and hip (BWH) information. In the system, the exact distance between the body and the sensor is captured by a pair of ultrasonic sensor arrays; then, the depth information is processed by the BWH generation method, including space coordinate generation, curve fitting and curve integration. The experimental results show that the proposed system can achieve a measuring accuracy of 99.61%, indicating that the proposed system is an ideal tool for garment customization.
