Refocusing and All-In-Focus Images for Angle-Sensitive Pixel Camera

Currently, the camera in your smartphone can take 2D color pictures. We have developed a new type of camera that can also provide you with depth at each point, not just color. Having depth and where objects are relative to each other in the scene open the door to many different new possibilities, for example having your phone tracking and recognizing your gestures, measuring distances between objects in pictures, changing the lighting, or removing and replacing the background in your photos. Another possibility is refocusing pictures after they were taken, or removing blur. This proposal will investigate fast and robust existing and new methods to achieve this latter possibility using our unique hardware. The success of this project would increase the commercialization potential of the developed camera, increase the odds of success of the spin-off company, and ultimately create a new high-technology company in Canada
