Abstract

Nowadays, computer vision is an essential part of modern autonomous mobile robots. Fisheye cameras are employed to capture large scenes with a single camera, but the hard radial distortion limits the accuracy of measurements. In this research, a vision system with multiple low-distortion cameras to capture large flat scenes from different viewpoints is proposed. This system applies a homography-based image mosaicing method and linear image interpolation. The obtained results show that the proposed system is useful for visual navigation of ground mobile robots.
