Paper Abstract

Human visual system is well suited for reliable and adequate volumic perception of natural environment. Volumic data flows coming from outer physical space are easily acquired in real time. Current modes of imitating physical spaces or creating of hypothetical virtual spaces have a lot of drawbacks. The quality and the speed of volumic data presentation are severely limited. Moreover most of current devices destined to operate with artificially generated volumic data flows seem poorly compatible with eye/brian data processing procedures. It can be illustrated for example by multiple failures in introduction of public stereoscopic TV in spite of numerous lengthy efforts made for years since the appearance of TV. Thus quite novel approaches must be formulated and novel principles introduced. Unified concept of volumic imaging of artificially generated data is introduced here. This concept gives way to creation of principally novel prospective devices which might drastically enhance authenticity of perceived artificially generated data. Quite novel principle of 'one-eyed' volumic imaging system for robotics is proposed.
