4D digital camera for robotic vision

Researchers at Stanford Computational Imaging Lab have developed a 4D camera to help autonomous vehicles and more generally robots to assess their environment. The 4D refers to the fact that the system is able to capture an image (2D) creating various focus planes (3D) using light field technology and providing …

We have been able to develop amazing vehicles, millions of people are flying on comfortable airplanes that are -almost- autonomously flying, robots in the sky. Yet we are still far to create a really small vehicle, as small as an insect, with comparable capabilities. The approach that some researchers have …
