Paper Abstract

We have previously reported an image capturing system called the optical-multiplex system comprised of an image sensor and a multi-lens array, which is compact and light and has a deep depth of field. In the system, light passes through five lenses in an aperture sheet and the object is detected by an image sensor. This system is unique because the object data passing through each of the lenses is a specific range of data, which is coordinated on the pixel array. This is in contrast to the current multi-lens systems, in which the object data from each lens is completely independent. We are now able to report that our system can coordinate data from both an object at a very far distance and an object at a measurable distance, suggesting that information from these two categories of objects can be separated by the opticalmultiplex system using new algorithm.
