Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel approach to creating panoramic image from a single lens. Unlike current panoramic image methods, which usually require two cameras or more to stitch images beside, our system does not require any controlled motions or constraints on how the image is taken. For example, a captured image taken from a hand-held digital camera device can be reformed into cylindrical image. Because we represent our panoramic image is carried out through polar transform. Our method to create panoramic image is fast and effective because it directly constructed by pixels accumulation. Methods to build the panoramic image by single lens are presented. By the obtained panoramic image, we can explore the virtual environment using standard 3D viewers and hardware without requiring special purpose players. The complete designed image capture system will be presented in the conference for eliciting more application development.
