Solving Technology Challenges of 360 Real-time Image Stitching
- Aligning multiple images: If the images are not perfectly aligned or have different exposures, stitching multiple images to create a seamless 360-degree view will be extremely challenging.
- Dealing with parallax: Parallax misalignment between images, causing issues when stitching images taken from different viewpoints.
- Handling moving objects: When objects in the scene are moving, it can be difficult to accurately stitch images together, as the objects may appear in different locations in each frame.
- Handling high-resolution images: Stitching together high-resolution images can be computationally intensive, requiring powerful hardware for processing in real-time.
- Combining images with different exposures: If the images being stitched together have different exposures, it can be difficult to create a seamless, evenly-lit 360-degree view.
- Ensuring real-time performance: For applications that require real-time image stitching it can be challenging to ensure that the technology can process and stitch the images together quickly enough to keep up with the demands of the applications.
