Paper Abstract

It is the intention of this paper to give details of the continuing research into obtaining 3-D coordinate information from an object space using non-standard video sources. Details are given on producing images with the line-scan sensor by rotating the device relative to an object space. Theoretically, this could provide picture information from a potential 360 degree panoramic view. However, initial results have demonstrated that such images are difficult for humans to interpret. Details are given in this paper on the limitations of the line-scan images produced from camera rotation for presentation to human observers.
