Stanford, UCSD team develops “4D” camera; use in autonomous vehicles

By mmillikin Engineers at Stanford University and the University of California San Diego (UCSD) have developed a monocentric lens with multiple sensors using microlens arrays, allowing light field (LF) capture with an unprecedented field of view (FOV)—a camera that generates four-dimensional images and can capture 138 degrees of information.

The new camera—the first single-lens, wide field of view, light field (LF) camera—could generate information-rich images and video frames that will enable robots to better navigate the world and understand certain aspects of their environment, such as object distance and surface texture. The researchers also see this technology being used in autonomous vehicles and
