Computer vision and electro optics
August 23, 2012
I see in one booklet these sentences, there is no more information, my question is what are the electro optics and DSP that they maybe can do in this device? How this device work? I search after sites that can help me to understand the electro optic and the computer vision that are related or close to this device and what are the benefits that this method has to a stereo video that use 2 video cameras.
"Small affordable imaging device capable of extracting depth information together with a standard video of scenes by using different focal plane lenses.
Main inventive effect is a plenoptic imaging device for extracting depth information of a scene comprising a micro lens array, an imaging assembly and a DSP.
Each micro-lens lies on a "micro-lens array" and designed to have a different focal plane and to be directed towards the same field of view.
The images that that will be received through each of the lenses will be captured by the imaging assembly and will be processed in order to compute the distance towards objects at the scene or the relative distance between objects."
