A hybrid camera system built by researchers at Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) combines wide-angle target monitoring with high-resolution image capture. The system detects indistinct target regions during omnidirectional viewing, and then uses pan-tilt cameras to capture a high-resolution image of the target. To make the system more efficient, the researchers developed an algorithm for reducing the number of complementary shots required. The combination of 360° monitoring with high-quality imaging capabilities makes this hybrid system potentially useful for surveillance applications that require wide field of view without compromising their ability to recognize and clearly image distant objects.
The platform constructed by…READ MORE
