  • Patent number: 11082566
    Abstract: A chart for calibrating a system of multiple cameras, the chart comprising: a background; an array of dots contrasting the background, wherein the array of dots are arranged in rows and columns, wherein the array of dots comprise a first dot array, and a second dot array, wherein the first dot array fully occupies a first region of evenly spaced dots with a first dot density, the second dot array fully occupies a second region of evenly spaced dots with a second dot density, and wherein the second region is enclosed within the first region; a group of first markers in the first region, a group of second markers in the second region, and a third marker at the center of the chart, wherein each second marker is closer to the third marker than each first marker.

  • Patent number: 10841558
    Abstract: A multiple camera imaging system comprises a first camera image sensor to obtain a first image of a scene and a second camera image sensor to obtain a second image. The system further comprises an image signal processor (ISP) to produce a first roughly-aligned image from the first image and a second roughly-aligned image from the second image. A feature point in the first roughly-aligned image is identified. A center of a search zone is created, which is a combination of the position of the feature point and an associated disparity value from the first and second roughly-aligned images. The search zone is created within the second roughly-aligned image. Candidate feature points are identified within the search zone, which is much smaller than the entire image. A best-matched feature point pair in the first roughly-aligned image and the second roughly-aligned image is then identified.

  • Patent number: 10360662
    Abstract: A multiple camera imaging system, comprising a first camera image sensor configured to obtain a first image of a scene from a first vantage perspective point; a second camera image sensor configured to obtain a second image of the scene from a second vantage perspective point; and an image signal processor (ISP), configured to process the first image and the second image by performing the following steps: producing a first monotone image from the first image, and a second monotone image from the second image; projecting the first monotone image to produce a first one-dimensional profile; and projecting the second monotone image to produce a second one-dimensional profile; extracting a matching information from the first and second one-dimensional profiles by matching the second one-dimensional profile to the first one dimensional profile; using the matching information produce a first processed two-dimensional image, and a second processed two-dimensional image that is aligned with the first processed two-dim

  • Patent number: 9684959
    Abstract: A method is proposed for automatically locating the optic disc or the optic cup in an image of the rear of an eye. A portion of the image containing the optic disc or optic cup is divided into sub-regions using a clustering algorithm. Biologically inspired features, and optionally other features, are obtained for each of the sub-regions. An adaptive model uses the features to generate data indicative of whether each sub-region is within or outside the optic disc or optic cup. The result is then smoothed, to form an estimate of the position of the optic disc or optic cup.
