Development of Low-Cost Compact Omnidirectional Vision Sensors

Part of the Monographs in Computer Science book series (MCS)


Physical agents living in complex environments, such as humans and animals, need two types of visual sensing abilities. One is to focus on particular objects with a precise but small retina, the other is to look around the environment with a wide but coarse retina. Both visual sensing mechanisms are required to enable robust and flexible visual behaviors. In particular, the omnidirectional visual information obtained by looking around is necessary to monitor wide areas and to avoid dangerous situations.
