The VISTA project is exploring means of producing very wide angled (panoramic) views of the environment. Some of these methods are suitable for robot perception in that they provide detailed shape and image information to the robot at a very low cost, with no moving parts. Other methods we are investigating provide extremely high resolution panoramic images for VR puproses. Applications of this technology range from surveillance, remote tele-operation to three-dimensional model building, and estimation of egomotion.
