Wide Range Image Sensing Using a Thrown-up Camera

Summary

In this study, we propose a method of wide range image sensing using a thrown-up camera. By throwing up a camera, we can get images that were difficult to get before, such as those taken from overhead. As an example of wide range image sensing, we integrated video images captured by the camera using image mosaicing technique. We also propose to use a high frame rate camera (HFR camera) in order to get much information. A seamless large image was obtained by synthesizing the images captured by a thrown-up HFR camera.
