Abstract

“This thesis describes our contribution to panoramic vision research. Different techniques in obtaining panoramic images are introduced and discussed. The main contribution of this thesis is obtaining panoramic images by a single fixed camera looking into a spherical mirror. The geometry and optical properties of a spherical mirror is explained in detail. Converting the spherical mirror image into a 360-degree panoramic image is explained, and two new algorithms are introduced. The image transformation is applied for both still and full motion images. A technique to obtain real-time image transformation is explained and experimental results are discussed. Techniques to improve speed and image quality are developed. A parallel transformation algorithm is implemented and tested on a network of workstations”--Abstract, page iii.
