A simple and successful design for a panoramic stereo system that uses a single camera and multiple mirrors is presented. A wide-baseline stereo enhances the three-dimensional reconstruction accuracy even with a single camera. The feasibility of the system as a practical stereo sensor has been demonstrated with experiments in an indoor environment.
