ABSTRACT
It was the panoramic technology that extensively used in the scopes of Video Compression, Virtual Reality, Pathology of Medical Science, Teleconference System and so on. Panoramic mosaic perspective, taking both full view images of a sight of view, is a critical figure of merit for a panoramic system. This paper introduces the design of a panoramic mosaic camera, which is used in the special circumstances that required both with view and ambulant ability. The camera achieves panoramic perspective by analyzing optical structure and using multiple image sensors. A mosaic algorithm to rapidly locate the coordinate of overlapped area and to obtain real-time performance in embedded system is analyzed and optimized. In addition, the Ethernet interface, to send the panoramic view to the remote terminal, is also discussed. Finally we present the evaluation results, showing that this camera can satisfy the requirement of panoramic systems.
