Abstract

We propose a new off-axially distributed image sensing (ODIS) using a wide-angle lens for reconstructing distortion-free wide-angle slice images computationally. In the proposed system, the wide-angle image sensor captures a wide-angle 3D scene, and thus the collected information of the 3D objects is severely distorted. To correct this distortion, we introduce a new correction process involving a wide-angle lens to the computational reconstruction in ODIS. This enables us to reconstruct distortion-free, wide-angle slice images for visualization of 3D objects. Experimental results are carried out to verify the proposed method. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time the use of a wide-angle lens in a multiple-perspective 3D imaging system is described.
