Different camera configurations to capture panoramic images and videos are commercially available today. However, capturing omnistereoscopic snapshots and videos of dynamic scenes is still an open problem. Several methods to produce stereoscopic panoramas have been proposed in the last decade, some of which were conceived in the realm of robot navigation(More)
The addition of stereoscopic navigation to an image-based virtual environment is a desirable enhancement. This can be implemented by sampling the scene with a number of stereoscopic panoramas. In this regard, clusters of panoramas in a known spatial arrangement can be used to render omnistereoscopic views. However, slight misalignments between panoramas(More)
A key problem in telepresence systems is how to effectively emulate the subjective experience of being there delivered by our visual system. A step toward visual realism can be achieved by using high-quality panoramic snapshots instead of computer-based models of the scene. Furthermore, a better immersive illusion can be created by enabling the free(More)
In recent years, the problem of acquiring omnidirectional stereoscopic imagery of dynamic scenes has gained commercial interest, and consequently, new techniques have been proposed to address this problem. The goal of many of these new panoramic methods is to provide practical solutions for acquiring real-time omnidirectional stereoscopic imagery for human(More)
Rateless codes, also known as fountain codes, are a class of erasure error-control codes that are particularly well suited for broadcast/ multicast systems. Raptor codes, as a particularly successful implementation of digital fountain codes, have been used as the applicationlayer forward error correction (FEC) codes in the third generation partnership(More)
e16573 Background: ICPs are structured multidisciplinary care plans for a specific clinical condition; they describe the tasks to be carried out together with their timing and sequence and the discipline involved in completing the task. They have been proposed as quality improvement strategies of both clinical and organizational aspects of patient-oriented(More)
