PanoShip

Panoramic stereo system for ASV

The ship developed as a heterogeneous autonomous vehicle experiments with geometric shoreline reconstruction and navigation. It uses visual sensors, that consist of two hyperbolic mirrors made of stainless steel and two cameras, which are reading images of the mirrors to obtain the stereo image of the ship's surroundings and the shoreline.

Each camera lens and hyperbolic mirror are waterproof sealed in the transparent acrylic tube to prevent any damage to the sensitive equipment. Cameras are mounted at the bottom of each tube.
