  • Patent number: 10785412
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus includes a sensor controller and a distance calculator. The sensor controller acquires a target image and a first reference image. The point spread function (PSF) of the target image is point-asymmetric, and the PSF of the first reference image being point-symmetric. The image sensor receives light having passed through a filter region that changes PSFs for sensor images of at least one kind into point-asymmetric forms, and then generates the target image for which a PSF has been changed into a point-asymmetric form by the filter region, and the first reference image that is not the target image. The distance calculator calculates the distance to an object captured in the target image and the first reference image, in accordance with the correlations each between an image obtained by convoluting a blur kernel to the target images and the first reference image.

  • Patent number: 10571246
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an image processing apparatus includes a memory and one or more processors. The one or more processors are electrically connected to the memory, and calculate blur correction information to make a blur of a first shape of an object approach a blur of a second shape of the object. The first shape of the object is contained in a first component image of one image. The second shape of the object is contained in a second component image of the one image. The one or more processors calculate a distance between an imaging device and the object based on an image distance when the one image is captured and the blur correction information. The image distance is a distance from a lens up to an image forming surface of the object.
