Paper Abstract

Compound eyes are a highly successful natural solution to the issue of wide field of view and high update rate for vision systems. Applications for an electronic implementation of a compound eye sensor include high-speed object tracking and depth perception. In this paper we demonstrate the construction and operation of a prototype compound eye sensor which currently consists of up to 20 eyelets, each of which forms an image of approximately 150 pixels in diameter on a single CMOS image sensor. Post-fabrication calibration of such a sensor is discussed in detail with reference to experimental measurements of accuracy and repeatability.
