Experiment - Fail
Just a quick experiment to see what could be done with webcams. I fixed two webcams side by side & tried to match up each side of the feeds so a bigger, more panoramic view could be obtained.
The end result was a failure - although I could match up objects on the screen, other parts of the picture were incorrect. This was due to different perspectives of both the images & the cameras.
For example, I could match up either foreground objects or background objects, not both.
For the system to work, I would have to literally create a pair of eyes! It would be so complicated - involving motors constantly changing the angle & the distance between each camera.
Although it was a failure, it was worth a try!
