Panoramic Vision

(catadioptric cameras & mosaics)

Panoramic images see large view angle, and therefore provide stable motion estimation and complete
reconstruction of surrounding scene.

and Applications, pp. 85-114. Springer Verlag, 2001.
(Overview of many central catadioptric cameras, definition of panoramic & omnidirectional image, epipolar geometry for hyperbolic and parabolic mirrors, point normalization for epipolar geometry estimation with omni-cameras)

for epipolar geometry central catadioptric panoramic cameras. 

Many catadioptric cameras are central omnidirectional cameras and many mosaics are non-central cameras.
