Paper Abstract

Based on compound-eye imaging, a compact image capturing system called TOMBO (Thin Observation Module by Bound Optics) is developed. The TOMBO system consists of a microlens array, a signal separator, and an image sensor. The captured compound image is a set of low-resolution unit images, which is processed to retrieve information of the target object. Owing to flexibility in configuration of the compound imaging system, the TOMBO system can be used for versatile applications. Possible configurations of the TOMBO system are summarized. As examples of the applications, multispectral imaging, 3-D data acquisition, short range imaging, gonio-imaging, and 3-D image interface are presented.
