After Data Ecologies 2014, a group of participants and some others collected in a small villa near Attersee in order to try and summarise their thoughts on how to "Think out loud about Futures" into a single volume. This four-day booksprint cilminated in the present volume, which summarises who should be thinking about the future, why, as well as h...

This work presents an omnidirectional stereo system with a direct application to autonomous logistics. The omnidirectional system uses fisheye lenses to inspect the surroundings of the automated forklift. The lenses are mounted on the top of the vehicle to allow a 360° scene reconstruction with a single stereo pair. The system provides the list of...
Conference Paper
Although stereo systems built up of omnidirectional cameras offer the possibility of providing information for a 360 grade field of view, the research in the field is still in an early stage compared to perspective systems. We provide in this study an extensive overview on existing techniques for camera calibration, stereo rectification, stereo mat...

... Moreover, Kelly declared that their floor mosaic guidance system had achieved sufficient maturity to be proven in an auto assembly plant [1]. Besides, a European 7th framework project, Plug & Navigate (PAN) Robots, had developed an omnidirectional stereo camera sensor, used for the novel on-board sensing system of AGVs [20][21][22]. This camera sensor was used to track and detect objects in the AGV's environment, and together with the laser scanners it formed a system that provided 2D safety enhanced by 3D perception. ...
... Omnidirectional vision systems are setup as a combination of multiple cameras or as a combination of a camera-mirror system to capture a scene with a 360° field of view. 17 For our approach, we choose the hyperbolic camera-mirror setup in vertical configuration, which provides a rotation in-variance omnidirectional field of view with a single-viewpoint, see Fig. 5(a). The motivation behind choosing a catadioptricomnidirectional system rather than a multiple perspective system is that perspective cameras can only use complex stitching algorithms with significant error properties in the case of repetitive patterns or scenes lacking salient features. ...
