The Fujitsu 360° Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology synthesizes images from four cameras to create a true 3-D hemispheric view of a vehicle's surroundings. The technology enables flexible omnidirectional monitoring around a vehicle from a dynamically definable perspective or "free eye point." Conventional multi-camera "bird's eye view" technologies stitch together two-dimensional images, often resulting in distorted images.
The Fujitsu 360° Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology uses advanced algorithms to smoothly combine images from each camera to offer a seamless and clear 360° view. The sophisticated Fujitsu technology also offers the unparalleled ability for the system designer to dynamically utilize the "free eye point" feature to change the displayed perspective to further optimize the view.
The Fujitsu 360° Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology aids vehicle safety by providing visual assistance to the driver. The true 360° three-dimensional view enhances visibility while drivers are backing up or turning corners, and eliminates "blind spots" to a degree that cannot be matched by two-dimensional technologies.
The Fujitsu technology not only provides views from all sides of the vehicle, it also creates a virtual "free eye point" perspective. This allows the driver to see images from the front, rear, and sides of the vehicle as well seeing a virtual, third-person, omnidirectional overview of the vehicle.
Applications for the technology include:
The Fujitsu 360° Wrap-Around Video Imaging Technology is available with a full set of authoring tools and library and device drivers for ready integration with the Fujitsu line of 3D graphics display controller LSIs.
System designers can combine the technology with the MB86R11 "Emerald-L" graphics SoC with integrated GDC and GPU for a powerful single-chip omnidirectional viewing solution.
