We present a prototype of a micro panoramic vision system that includes five micro-cameras controlled simultaneously by mechanical arm-like actuators, structurally similar to umbrella ribs. Each camera rests on an arm that can be oriented at an angle simultaneously with the other four arms. This arrangement offers reconfigurable angle of view and depth perception. Stitching of the images from individual cameras yields a horizontal field of view of 360°. This micro-camera set is configured in the context of laparoscopic surgery and single-port surgery.
