We describe a system for wide view imaging, which uses multiple image sensors and mirrors. In this system, each image obtained by the multiple sensors has a non-overlapped area and is equivalent to the partial image of the wide view obtained by an imaginary sensor. Therefore depth estimation from the sensor to each object is not required for combination. In this paper, we describe the wide view imaging system using random access image sensors we have designed and a FPGA (field programmable gate array). We can control the system to show a panoramic image or partial image in real time. The new image sensor has 128×128 pixels, the main functions being random access and interpolation of pixel values on a quarter pitch. We show results obtained by the chip.
