  • Publication number: 20130229544
    Abstract: An image processing device includes: a correspondence point calculating unit, an image deformation unit, an image interpolation unit, and an optional image synthesis unit. The correspondence point calculating unit detects a point of the second image that corresponds to each reference point of the first image. The image deformation unit creates an image by moving pixels from a point in the second image to a corresponding reference point to generate a deformed image that has a viewpoint which is in approximate agreement with the viewpoint of the first image. The image interpolation unit generates an interpolated image, which has interpolated pixel values for points in the region of the deformed image where a corresponding point is not detected. The image synthesis unit generates a synthesized image as a synthesis of the first image and the interpolated image.
