Abstract

Digital imaging technology has been widely used in opto-electronics products and precision metrology. 3D digital imaging technology is indispensable in the testing and measurement of object's shape, profile and angular distances. This paper focuses on the design and manufacture of a compound eye system for 3D imaging. The main objective is to obtain a realistic 3D positional information of an object from a depth information extracting program. Firstly , a compound eye will be designed to collect the light field information of an image. Secondly, a depth information extracting program will be developed to derive the focus of each sub object in the image.
