Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a new design for a 3D system implemented by using a special 3D Ring Lens instead of traditional lenses. The new system has the ability to capture the 3D information with the way that simplifies the necessary steps for 3D reconstruction. The new system capture two images for every point in the object field of the object field of the new systems with a fixed geometric constraint between the correspondence points. It is independent of any intrinsic parameter or extrinsic parameters like epi-polar geometry of traditional stereo system. A description of the main features of the new lens and the new systems will be discussed. The new system is suitable for many stereo applications such as disparity, depth/map estimation, 3D reconstruction and robotics applications such as vehicle navigation and object tracking.
