Imaging System through Coupling of Panoramic Imaging and Retroflexion Imaging Techniques

This project aims to design a new intelligent recognition system by combining panoramic imaging and retroflexion techniques. Panoramic imaging allows the user to project hemispheric 360º vision onto a 2D detector. The project then intends to couple the panoramic image with the retroflexion image. Retroflexion imaging consists in emitting a laser pulse and observing with a camera the return of the pulse after its retroflexion on components. The retroflexion principle helps the user identify different components using their optical signature. Applications of such a project are mainly related to sophisticated surveillance systems in the military, commercial or public security fields.
