single snapshot from a conventional off-the-shelf camera. As a result , it has broad implications for commercial and web-based multimedia ap plications such as games, virtual reality, surveillance, and teleconfe rencing. This book is an edited collection of articles written by res earchers who have worked extensively in the area of panoramic vision. This is probably the first book that covers such a wide range of topic s in this exciting and promising area. More specifically, it features representative work in the design of panoramic image capturing systems , the theory involved in the imaging process, software techniques for creating panoramic images, and applications that use panoramic images. It also includes a historical perspective on panoramic imaging. The i ntended audience is anyone who wishes to become familiar with panorami c vision and its latest research work. The contents of this book will allow the reader to understand the more technical aspects of panoramic vision, such as sensor design and imaging techniques. Researchers and instructors will especially find this book useful.
