4D digital camera for robotic vision

Researchers at Stanford Computational Imaging Lab have developed a 4D camera to help autonomous vehicles and more generally robots to assess their environment. The 4D refers to the fact that the system is able to capture an image (2D) creating various focus planes (3D) using light field technology and providing …
