“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.
