Single-lens, light field 4D camera to give robots and autonomous cars better vision

A robot is only as good as its sensors, so researchers at Stanford University and UC San Diego have developed a new "4D" camera that greatly enhances robotic vision. Billed as the first-ever single-lens, wide field of view, light field camera, the new system uses a spherical lens and advanced algorithms to capture information across a 138-degree field of view to allow robots to not only navigate, but also better understand their environment.
