Aleš Hribar (2012) Omnidirectional to Panoramic Images Transformation. EngD thesis.
Omnidirectional photos or videos are not very useful in practice. However, they can be transformed into a panoramic picture or video using relevant software. Panoramic pictures are easily viewable by human and also computer software can much easily recognize objects using computer vision on panoramic pictures. This thesis describes different types of omnidirectional cameras, their use and transformations to panoramic image. Furthermore, two different programs are implemented and described in thesis, one being implemented in Matlab platform, the other using CUDA library. They are algorithmically similar and they both use reverse image transformation. Additionally, different applications of omnidirectional cameras are stated in thesis.
