Rugged, obstruction-free, mirror-lens combination for panoramic imaging

Stürzl, W.; Soccol, D.; Zeil, J.; Boeddeker, N.; Srinivasan, M. V.


We present a new combination of lenses and reflective surfaces for obstruction-free wide-angle imaging. The panoramic imaging system consists of a reflective surface machined into solid Perspex, which together with an embedded lens, can be attached to a video camera lens. Unlike vision sensors with a single mirror mounted in front of a camera, the view in the forward direction (i.e., the direction of the optical axis) is not obstructed. Light rays contributing to the central region of the...[Show more]
